TRASHING LINCOLN

        THEN AND NOW

Stuff you just won't get in history books since 1900,   but you should.....

Lincoln was hated - and eventually got a bullett in the brain  -- for his "Love of the Niggers".

No one ever told you that.  It's about time they did. 





(this blog is a hot mess, I do not deny)
_______________________

WHAT WAS CENTRAL ISSUE OF THE DAY, 1854-1861?

Have US text books and "historians" santized what led to the Civil War?

Hell yes.



Even Northern papers called for the death of men like Frederick Douglas for even speaking against slavery.


Did you know that?  Or not?



When Abraham Lincoln debated in Quincy, did you know he was well aware that long too long before that, Quincy papers called for the death of Frederick Douglass for speaking against slavery?


People today are -- frankly -- stupid, through no fault of their own, about the hatred of black males, and how that hatred was also directed at those who spoke (like Lincoln) for an end to slavery.

No -- most people in the South did NOT want slavery. But to free the slaves, in the minds of millions of whites,  meant "Niggers" would be free to walk the streets, and talk to white women.  White women would "sleep with Niggers"  said Stephen A Douglas (and many others said the same thing).

This was not a side issue -- at all. It was a basic issue. Douglas and Southern leaders pounced all over this in nearly every speech. In fact, the biggest speeches, the biggest cheers from the crowds, the calls (even in the North) of  "down with Niggers"  was a direct result of men like Douglas and Southern leaders like Jefferson Davis and Robert Toombs, telling the public the horrible result of stopping the SPREAD of slavery.

The terrible result?

"Niggers"  will be with white women.

__________________________________________

You might think, and your history teacher might tell you, that  "the expansion of slavery" was the key issue of the day.  By that I mean the issue that moved the public to fight, attack, and die.

Actually that's not true.  Southern leaders, and Northern leaders like Douglas,  shouted out the most important issue repeatedly -- "Niggers will take white women"  and the "white race will be exterminated".

This is what got the crowds cheering, and the hate flowing.

It's about time someone told you -and told your history teacher.

_______________________________________


Douglas (Stephen A) and Southern leaders thought calling Lincoln a "Negro Worshipper"  who will "destroy the white race"  and "have your daughter sleep with Niggers"  was so important they shouted it -- shouted it -- to the crowds.

Did you know Stephen Douglas in at least two debates not only shouted this -- but ran from side to side of the stage screaming it?

Southern leaders outdid even that, claiming to cheering crowds Lincoln and the abolitionist were "going to exterminate the white race".

Why would they think this was so important to do it repeatedly and in such dramatic ways?   They thought it was important to do -- so why do our "historians" about this era not see it as important enough to even mention in a clear way, much less  show this as the "emotional hatchet"  used to pump up the hate and fear, that lead to the Civil War?

Good question.  The answer to why our "historians" do not tell you is mostly likely twofold  1) It it an ugly topic and makes Southern leaders look like foul, almost insane, men. 2) To break it down to this basic of truths makes it harder to give the various bullshit memes such as "state's rights"  and "agricultural vs manufacturing".   

____________________________________


WHAT WAS THE PUBLIC THINKING
IN THEIR HEADS?

When men screamed and cheered at speeches, when they marched off to war, particularly in the South, what were they thinking?

Don't be so sure you know, because if you do know, you sure as hell didn't get that out of a history text book published in our life times.

Over and over and over  Southern leaders punched this hate and fear about "Niggers" sleeping with white women.  So much so that when Southern soldiers were captured, do you know what was one thing they said??

They said they fought because Yankees "wanted our daughters to sleep with Niggers" 

So it was a  BFD  





 WARNED IN THE SENATE.

The word "Nigger"  was loaded even then -- and Douglas (after he threw in with the South to get his power in the Senate)   regularly used "Nigger"  even on the Senate floor,  and was warned of it.

But Southern Senators themselves did not use the word "Nigger"   on the Senate floor.  Douglas apparently did this to prove to Southern radicals that he hated blacks as much as they did -- and that he hated anyone who was going to let white women "be with Negroes on the street".




EVEN NORTHERN NEWSPAPERS 

WANTED BLACKS HUNG




THIS IS WHAT LINCOLN WAS DEALING WITH

THIS WAS IN QUINCY ILLINOIS PAPER 

SEE FOR YOURSELF

QUINCY WAS SITE OF  FAMOUS DEBATE



It was not Douglas -- it was a mindset of most of America,  including many in the NORTH.

SO when Lincoln spoke he had to be very very careful.

Politicians like Douglas, used fear and hate of black males --taking white women regularly if the country just stopped the spread of slavery.

Remember that -- just stopping the SPREAD of slavery was going to cause white women to sleep with "Niggers".

____________________________________

 Wanting your daughter to "sleep with Niggers"   was not a side issue.

 It was THE ISSUE -- more so than slavery itself, in how politicians got crowds to hate blacks.

As Hinton Helper wrote in the famous book "Impending Crisis," slavery was NOT popular in the South, and if they had free speech (they did not) and had honest elections (they did not) slavery might well have been voted out!

But - the hate and fear monger politcians could and did demogogue this issue, to make people hate blacks, and fear anyone who was against slavery, on the basis of pumping up is speech, after speech, after speech, how Lincoln and others were going to make your daughters "sleep with Niggers"  and or destroy the white race.

It's an indictment against 20th century "historians"  that they white washed this to the point of an absurdity, and completely failed to show this was the central issue, politically.

Not slavery only, but the fear of white women sleeping with black men.

That is why Stephen Douglas, repeatedly, loudly, proudly, over and over, used "Nigger" and "sleep with your daughters" in  his own debates.


If Douglas (and others) thought it was so important to scream these at Lincoln in front of crowds ( and he did scream it)  maybe "historians" could take a few seconds and explain this factually happened, even if they are too stupid and sheep like to let the public know it was a central issue.

___________________________________

 Newspapers made fun of Lincoln for saying the races were equal under the law.


In fact, the SCOTUS officially ordered that blacks are NOT equal--did you know that?  The Surpreme Court of the USA ordered (yes ordered) that blacks be seen as not human beings, but as property.

Stephen A Douglas repeatedly,  in every single debate, brought this up again and again. Lincoln was "preaching revolution" for even saying blacks have rights under the Declaration of Independence.

_______________________________________


DECLARATION INDEPENDENCE KICKED TO CURB?

As Douglas well knew (and you do not) the Supreme Court had specifically invalidated the Declaration of Independence -- that all men are created equal.




NOT TAUGHT?
WHY?


You can not make sense of the Lincoln Douglas debates unless you know that the SCOTUS ordered-  yes ordered -- blacks to be seen NOT AS HUMAN BEINGS.

And Southern leaders were proud as hell of that, and used that ruling to claim they had every right to attack Kansas, when Kansas tried to keep slavery out.  Very basic -- but it's not taught.


   THIS IS FROM HIS BOOK 

RISE AND FALL OF THE CONFEDERATE GOVERNMENT.

HE SAID IT -- NOT ME.




Jeff Davis himself explained it -- proudly pointing to Dred Scott decision that blacks were not human beings, but must be considered as property.

So, according to Davis, even though Kansas voted 95% against slavery, that did not matter.  The federal government was ordered in Dred Scott to protect slavery.  And Davis said that meant the government must protect slavery in Kansas regardless of what the people there wanted..

Yet there is not a single text book in the US, at high school level, that explicitly shows these most central points possible.

No mention that Southern leaders and Northern leaders hated Lincoln and specifically loudly repeatedly screamed to crowds that Lincoln was a Nigger Lover, or Nigger Worshipper, a black republican, and more, that Lincoln would make your daughters sleep with Niggers and destroy the white race.

No mention.

Yet when Lincoln got up to speak, that is what he had to deal with. 

Therefore the Declaration of Independence was invalidated. All men were no longer equal, and now, the Dred Scott court declared that to be the law of the land.

Black men taking white women was one "knife"  Douglas used to stab Lincoln again and again, but he used another knife, too.

That Lincoln was committing treason by saying blacks and whites should be equal under the law.



Nor does it show the crowds cheering, and screaming back "Down with Niggers".  That kind of truth never made it into our history books, much less movies bout the time.

And it was much worse in the South -- this was the language used in the NORTH.

_________________________________________

REPEATEDLY FOR A REASON

Douglas repeatedly, with great fan fare, repeatedly and to Lincoln's face, and behind his back, accused Lincoln of wanting your daughter to "sleep with Niggers".

Why would he do such a thing?   

Because it worked. And it's the tip of the iceberg. Douglas appealed to the fear, already rife in the US, about black men taking white women. 

In the South, Lincoln's enemies (the enemy of anyone against even the spread of slavery) claimed stopping the spread of slavery would result in death of the white race.

Crowds cheered.  Remember that -- crowds cheered.  Those who could pump up the hate and fear, became the leaders.  Remember that, too. Those who pumped up the hate and fear the most became the political leaders.

That's what Lincoln and the USA was up against.

______________________________________


HATE/FEAR
of black men 
taking white women.

Pumped up by the most powerful speakers of that generation. 
______________________

Northern papers urging for death to Frederick Douglas 


Nigger lovers - - are going to destroy the white race.

Nigger lovers like Lincoln.  

_______________________________________________


Douglas changed to the word "Nigger" instead of "Negro" about the time he flipped over to help the South by the Kansas Act.  Douglas was repeatedly admonished in the US Senate for using the term "Nigger".

Newspapers at the time sometimes quoted Douglas as "ranting about Niggers" -- and reported factually Douglas's use of the term.

But other papers cleaned up his language, using "Negro".  It's impossible to tell now when he used "Nigger" -- but his speeches are always mocking blacks, and anyone who dared speak well of them, or suggest they should be equal to whites under the law. 


Stephen A Douglas taunts Lincoln as "champion of the black man" 
The crowds cheer and reply "Down with the Negro".


Anyone -- anyone -- against the spread of slavery was "trying to destroy the white race"  said Southern leaders. 
___________________________________________.

LINCOLN SHOT AT SOONER
BECAUSE HE WAS "NIGGER LOVER" 

The point is, Douglas repeatedly equated Lincoln with "Negro" or "Nigger"  rights, and openly taunted Lincoln for "wanting your daughters to sleep with Niggers". 

And it worked.  Stephen A Douglas won that Senate race, because he made people in the NORTH worry about "Niggers" sleeping with white women.

So when Lincoln got up to speak -- every time he got up to speak -- he had to be very careful what he said. His full speeches are amazing -- radical -- for equality, but he did at times parse words.  Still, read the full speech, not the edited bullshit, and learn his actions.

WHAT WORKS?

There was no white person as radical as Lincoln on the national scene -- except for John Brown.  And as Frederick Douglass himself said of his good friend John Brown -- Brown harmed the effort to defeat slavery by his foolish attempt to get slaves to fight back.

Lincoln's way -- worked.  Yes, he had to parse words at times, but Lincoln's way worked.

If Lincoln had gotten up and said  "If your daughters want to sleep with Niggers, that's their choice"   he would have been killed long before history ever knew who he was.

Get the picture?



___________________________________________.




Douglas beat Lincoln in that Senate race -- the Lincoln Douglas debates were staged for the Senate race. Douglas would not debate Lincoln in the race for POTUS. 


____________________________________________________________________


Lincoln was the "Negro Worshipper"  who will "make your daughter's sleep with Niggers"  and thereby destroy the white race.

This was not a few nuts, a few "radicals" in the South.  Lincoln was hated North and South by many, who claimed he was "obsessed with equality for the Nigger".

Why are you not told this ugly truth?

Good question.  Maybe because it's too ugly?
_______________________________________

Southern War Ultimatums.

SPREAD OF SLAVERY = WHITE SURVIVAL


There is not one US text book that we know of that even shows Southern War Ultimatums. Nor do they show Southern leaders speeches boasting they were already killing and torturing in Kansas, to spread slavery there.


SPREAD OF SLAVERY = WHITE SURVIVAL


Nor is there a US text book that we know of that shows Lincoln was repeatedly, to his face, behind his back, hated, castigated, defamed as "Nigger lover"  "black republican"  who would make your daughters "sleep with Niggers"


SPREAD OF SLAVERY = WHITE SURVIVAL



EXPAND SLAVERY 
OR THE WHITE RACE WILL PERISH




And by sleeping with "Niggers" - the white race would be destroyed.


EMOTIONAL HAMMER

DRIVING UP THE HATE

DRIVING UP THE FEAR



SPREAD OF SLAVERY = WHITE SURVIVAL


I refer to this repeatedly -- because it takes a while to sink in to US students. You are not told.  

You can easily walk into the head of a history department, even one that has a special "scholar" for Lincoln,  and it's a good bet he can not tell you who the Senator was that passed Kansas Act.


He will say Stephen A Douglas.

Yet Lincoln explained it, himself.   He explained how Douglas did an abrupt and bizarre flip -- pushing Kansas Act at the behest of slave state  senators, (particularly Atchison).  Lincoln also explained exactly the tool Douglas used to push Kansas Act through, despite the public's immense reaction against it.   A "Lincoln scholar"  should  know what Lincoln wrote about in detail -- and he wrote about that.

And Atchison himself boasted about it -- that he actually passed Kansas Act.

But if that were not enough -- and it should be enough - he will not know that Atchison literally left DC immediately after passing the Kansas Act, and went to Kansas, there started his violence and terror.  None other than Charles Sumner, in the famous "Crimes Against Kansas" speech, spoke of nothing else.

Sumner was speaking of Atchison - by name.  So it should not be a mystery to anyone who portends to know that period.

_______________________________________

WHY THE SCHOLAR SHOULD KNOW?

The fact Atchison got Kansas Act passed, then went to Kansas and started killing, should be news to literally no one who considers themselves remotely aware of the basics.  Y

After all, Charles Sumner, in his famous "Crimes Against Kansas" speech spoke of it for two days!  

Ironically every history teacher we have meet insists they are well aware of the "Crimes Against Kansas" speech.

We have met teachers who actually give courses on Crimes Against Kansas Speech, but are for some odd reason oblivious that the entire time, Sumner was speaking of Atchison and his men.   And he explained that Atchison was the one that got Kansas Act passed, then went out to do his violence.

________________________________________

THE BASICS ARE NOT TAUGHT

BULLSHIT IS TAUGHT.

When you go to high school then college, you assume your teacher would know the basics.  But that does not seem to be the case on this aspect of the Civil War, and what led to it.

As as student, I had no idea, none, that the big push to spread slavery was a violent horrible thing, and that it was based on this lie: that "Niggers" will take white women.

That was not a side issue.  It was the issue.  And Stephen A Douglas used it over and over in the debates, even screaming it, running side to side of the stage, screaming it.

______________________________________

FREDERICK DOUGLASS

WAS HE STUPID?







________________________________________________

Stephen A Douglas said Lincoln was "Negro Worshiper" who was "obsessed with equality".

Northern newspapers jeered at Lincoln for daring to say blacks and white are equal and blacks have the same rights to life and liberty as any one of any color, by virtue of the Declaration of Independence.

 (Yes, he did, see his full quotes).

Frederick Douglass also said Lincoln was radical for equality.

Why?  Were these leaders stupid? One of these men hated Lincoln, the other loved him.  They both said the same thing.

Lincoln was radical for equality.

Gee -- maybe they were there or something?  Maybe they didn't get their information from distorted bullshit and partial quotes?

Weird, huh?
_______________________________________________

In other speeches too, not just the debates, Douglas and others who heaped scorn on Lincoln and men like Lincoln, the refrain was the same...... you want our daughters to sleep with Niggers.

So when Lincoln got up to speak, he knew that most people were already afraid of him, because the public was told over and over that black men would take their women, their wives, their daughters.

This is an ugly reality, but it is very much at the heart of what led to the Civil War. 

That was the emotional and repeated "verbal hammers"  shouted at Lincoln, even to his face, in the famous Lincoln Douglas debates. 

_____________________________________________


Northern newspapers hated Lincoln too -- not just Southern politicians and newspapers.  

Lincoln --- and Southern leaders -- would be dumbfounded today if they heard this crap about Lincoln "not caring about slavery".   

Lincoln, they said, was "the worst sort of abolitionist"  because Lincoln repeatedly said slavery had to go, or the Union had to go.  And Lincoln emphatically said -- the Union will not go.

________________________________

Lincoln, and Southern leaders, would be stunned to come back today  and see that a central emotional issue of the day (that black men will sleep with white women)  has been essentially pushed out of our national consciousness.


It's simply not taught.   In fact, it's rarely even mentioned.

Yes, it's  a harsh and nasty topic -- but you can't understand Lincoln, the Civil War, or US history of that era unless you know it.

They did not fight to spread slavery -- that was Southern leader's doing.  But Southern men would and did fight to stop the "Niggers"  from being around white women.   That was a basic and persistent and effective propaganda technique used to justify violence against anyone who was simply against slavery for any reason. 

________________________________________

Screaming it, running side to side, over and over

Lincoln (and others) were called "Nigger lovers"  and "Negro Worshipers"  more times than Lincoln could count.  To his face, by the most powerful speaker of the time.

Then Lincoln had to get up and explain -- I am NOT for your daughters sleeping with "Niggers".   I am for, and we should all be for, equality under the law for all races, all creeds. The Declaration of Independence helped create this nation, and slavery is turning the Declaration upon it's head in a vile and violent way. 






Lincoln (and others) were accused  so often of "wanting your daughters to sleep with Niggers"  Southern soldiers went to war to stop that.


NOT A SIDE ISSUE

IT WAS THE MAIN ISSUE 
In fact, Stephen A Douglas made this the central emotional 
issue to his debates, and other speeches, during that time.

For example, Douglas ran from side to side of the debate stage in at least two cities, actually screaming the rant about "Niggers will sleep with your daughters".


It was not just Douglas, not just during the debates, and not just against Lincoln. But Douglas did this to Lincoln's face -- and it worked.


Remember that -- it worked. Douglas won that election.  

 And Douglas would have won the Presidential race, most likely, if two other pro-spread of slavery candidates did not run.  Lincoln did get the most votes,  but his three opponents got more than he did.

If Douglas and Lincoln ran head to head, likely Douglas wins - and for the same reason.  He would paint Lincoln was "wanting your daughters to sleep with Niggers".

North and South, the predominate fear was that black men would take "our women".   Yes, it was.

Douglas screaming it in debates-- and making it clear in his other speeches -- was just one of hundreds of speakers pushing this meme.  

Not just in the South -- many in the North, including powerful newspapers, trashed Lincoln for being "radical" and a "black republican"  who would bring a calamity to the country.

Remember this -- not many people in the South would lift a finger to spread slavery, but they would go to war to stop the "Niggers"  from being around white women.   That was a basic and persistent and effective technique.   But one that has lasting impact to this day.

_____________________________________________

THE HAMMER

YOUR DAUGHTER SLEEPS WITH NIGGERS


Anyone even against the spread of slavery -- remember this, it's important -- was going to make your daughters sleep with "Niggers".   They did not all use that vile crude language, but the crowds cheered those who did use that kind of language.

Francis Blair spoke of this repeatedly -- those who urged violence (yes Southern leaders urged violence)  and those who equated death of white race  if slavery did not spread,  got cheers.   Off stage, Blair said, these men did not say such things, and would in fact speak entirely differently to other groups.

But to get the cheers, the political leaders would use demagoguery -- pumping up the hate and fear.

Specifically they told crowds things like God not only ordained slavery, but God wanted blacks punished in perpetuity for biblical reasons (the Cornerstone speech).

These were not drunks at a bar, they were the very top Southern leaders -- Jefferson Davis included.  Vice President of CSA -- Alexander Stephens, gave a series of speeches to cheering crowds with words so amazing you wonder if someone did not make them up 100 years later to make the South seem like ISIS level of insanity.   But no, those were the words of Alexander Stephens, and he confirmed that himself later in life, and even explained he helped the reporters at the time get his words right for the record.

Ending slavery - in fact, just stopping the spread of slavery -- would be "death of the white race"  and "white race will be exterminated."

Remember, not some nuts at a bar. Not some low level drunks.  Not some throw away line.  This was the central and very real main point of Southern leaders at the time.
__________________________________________________________________________


IN THE NORTH TOO


Over, and over, and over -- and over -- Douglas brought this up.  But so did Southern leaders, including officially. 

Yet this is not even mentioned in any major book, other than a few paragraphs in the back of a book by Allen Guelzo.   The bullshit we get from most "historians"  is about a "complex" issue and a "clash" of economic ideas.

No, the facts are clear, if you read what Southern leaders themselves shouted about repeatedly, and their actions, at the time.  They were saving the white race -- Lincoln was going to make your daughters sleep with Niggers and destroy the white race.

__________________________________

RADICAL AND EFFECTIVE

According to some of the post powerful Northern and Southern leaders, Lincoln was radical as hell.  Obsessed with equality "for the niggers". 

And that was toxic to the white race.  Lincoln did have to be careful how he spoke, where he spoke, but even then, careful and parsed words notwithstanding, Lincoln's full speeches are stunning for their power and assault on the deadly cancer (he called it cancer) of slavery.   

Lincoln could have said things in a more strident way - but he knew what he was doing, and who the audience was. No one was confused whatsoever that heard him speak. Slavery must end, or the Union must end.

Slavery must end -- or the Union must end -- and as Lincoln shouted in one rare outburst, "You shan't end it, we won't let you."



Does any college teach that Lincoln yelled that slave owners should be kicked to death? Do they teach that Lincoln also yelled that the South "Shan't"  end this country "we won't let you."?

Fuck no.   Nor do they seem to give much shit about what Lincoln did -- see below -- like stand up to President Polk, accuse him of going to war to spread slavery, and trying to end slavery in DC, while he was in Congress. 




Where those leaders (North and South) wrong that Lincoln was radical?   Exaggerating?   


Not really -- because they knew Lincoln personally, saw him speak, knew his history.   And of course, they knew the context, what was going on.

Lincoln's enemies -- including all Southern leaders, including Frederick Douglass, and Stephen A Douglas,  did NOT get their information from distorted edited quotes 150 years later.

______________________________________

THE FULL CONTEXT MATTERS. 

How he spoke in public matters.

While you can -- if you want -- take a dozen Lincoln quotes, ignore the full speech, ignore his actions, and ignore how radical Lincoln was to go where he did, when he did, and make Lincoln seem as vile as any slave owner.

And that has been done -- repeatedly.    Those who want to seem smart by calling Lincoln religious, they can quote him to that effect.  Those who want to seem smart by calling him agnostic or atheist --plenty of partial quotes to do that, too. 

You can edit quotes to make him appear radical as hell, like when he said slave owners or the Supreme Court deserve to be kicked to death (hard to tell who he meant). 

Just depends what you want to impress people with.  But if you want to get the whole story, that's another question.  

__________________________________________

LINCOLN WELL KNOWN

BY HIS ENEMIES AND FRIENDS


People knew Lincoln well by 1858.  Certainly Stephen A Douglas knew him best of all,  of those major players of that era.  They debated each other dozens of times,  and had each other's speeches printed out, studied them like chess players would study an opponents move.





For example Douglas well knew that Lincoln stood up to President Polk and accused him (correctly) of going to war to spread slavery.  He knew --  you did not, most likely, that from his days in Congress fighting the land grab to spread slavery, Lincoln was focused ending slavery as soon as possible.

Sadly, LIncoln's biggest problem was apathy -- and fear.   Most people in the North simply did not care much about slavery, as long as it did not impact them.   But fear too -- people in the North believed like people in the South, that freeing blacks meant black men would take white women.

To fight the apathy, Lincoln showed how slavery was spreading and would soon be over the entire USA (he was correct) or slavery would be defeated.  There was no middle ground, because of Kansas Act and Dred Scott decision.

To fight the fear, Lincoln assured the public he was not for "complete" equality, he did not need to have "a slave for a wife"  he said, "I can just leave her alone".

In her "natural right"  Lincoln said repeatedly, she (the slave woman) is most certainly "my equal and the equal of any man".

Why not quote him on those things? 

____________________________________________________




Slavery growing -- doubling, like a cancer.  Again and again, Lincoln referred to this growth. He even called it a cancer.

As Lincoln said -- in 100 different ways, on 100 different days -- that now, with Kansas Act and Dred Scott decision,  slavery would either spread to all of the US, or slavery would end.  "We will be all one thing, or the other".

And he did expect (or intend) that the United States would end.

So when Lincoln wrote that famous letter to Greeley, he said the same thing he had said 100 times before, but in a careful way.  Saving the Union meant ending slavery, and ending slavery meant saving the Union.  They were not two separate things -- not after Southern War Ultimatums, Kansas Act, and Dred Scott.

If you don't know why Dred Scott decision made it all or nothing -- that the entire US would be slave states, or all would be free states, read Lincoln's speeches.  He explained it very well.  

Ironically Southern leaders agreed with Lincoln, as made clear by Jefferson Davis's own "Address to People of the Free States"





______________________________________________

WHY WOULD LINCOLN KNOW THINGS
THAT YOU ARE NOT TAUGHT?


He knew things you have no clue about -- because you are not taught.  He knew about Southern War Ultimatums.  Lincoln also knew about the killings and tortures in Kansas, and how Southern leaders had been bragging about being at war since 1856.

Unlike you, Lincoln did not get his information from text books approved of by Southern states -- he got it from the people at the time.  

The area in white below is area gained by war against Mexico--

The area in red what the area Southern leaders promised to get next -- all the way to the Pacific.  Even though California Kansas and Oregon were already free states by the time of the US Civil War, Southern War Ultimatums demanded the spread of slavery there.




 It was not a secret -- even people in the South, even some slave owners, accused Polk of going to war against Mexico in order to spread slavery.   And they knew Lincoln regarding 1000 other points, too numerous to count.   


They knew Lincoln from his time trying to then stop slavery from going into the land stolen (yes, stolen) from Mexico.

They knew Lincoln from his efforts to stop slavery in District of Columbia.  They knew things no one bothers to mention, much less teach, about Lincoln today. 
To understand US history during that time, or to understand Lincoln, you need to know wtf was going on, not just a few edited out of context speeches.

_____________________________________________


Quoting the Bible.
Quoting Lincoln.

Lincoln gave over 2000 speeches from 1846 -1861.  Sometimes two or three a day. In fact, from 1854, to the day he died, that's virtually all Lincoln did, work against slavery.


To "work against" slavery, Lincoln had to first deal with the claim he was a "Nigger lover" who wanted your daughters to sleep with "Niggers".
In fact, Stephen A Douglas, and others, were very effective at making the issue the survival of white race.    You are not told that, and the core of "survival of white race" was about women sleeping with "Niggers".

So it's a difficult and ugly truth to teach in school, or even write about history books or even academic journals.  

____________________________________________

NO ONE CONFUSED THEN

No one was confused at Lincoln's speeches.   They left knowing exactly what he meant -- slavery had to go, or the United States would go.

Bluntly put (Lincoln avoided being blunt, for wise reasons)  the United States was in a battle to death over slavery.  Southern leaders, by the Kansas Act and Dred Scott, had made it a fight to the death. Only one would survive.

And Lincoln said he expected the Union to survive.

People think Lincoln only, or even chiefly, cared about Union -- but if he did care about Union, he did so for the very reasons he claimed.  Only the Union surviving and the Declaration of Independence being held as valid, could stop the spread of slavery. 

At the time, no one was sure if slavery would grow, as the South promised it would, not just to the rest of the USA (See below) but to the rest of the white world.

A government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

And it was about to perish, if the slave owners and slave power had their was -- see their ISIS like speeches, we show some below. 

____________________________________________

Over a million words.  You can -- and people have -- quoted him to prove anything you want. Just take a few select quotes and you can make Lincoln seem as racist as Jeff Davis.

Lincoln calls for slave owners to be kicked to death?


Take a few other quotes, and you can make him seem uncaring about slavery.

Fair enough -- word games, using Lincoln's own words, are valid. But get the full speeches, in context, as people at the time did.   Lincoln was the most radical and effective figure of the era.    His enemies and friends called him radical.

Why would they do that?  Were they stupid?

_________________________________________

Southern leaders claimed Lincoln's "radical Niggerism" was going to destroy the white race.

Did you know that?  

Southern crowds cheered such speeches.   Did you know that?


Southern soldiers captured early in the war, who owned no slaves, were asked why are you fighting?   Do you know what one group of men said? 

Because the North was going to make our daughters "sleep with Niggers"

______________________________________________

When Lincoln got up to speak -- every time he got up to speak -- he had to be careful what he said.   In the Lincoln Douglas debates (you are not told this, but it was well known at the time)  Douglas yelled in Lincoln's face, and in two cities (Quincy and Charleston) ran back and forth on the stage screaming that Lincoln wants your daughters to sleep with "Niggers"

Just stopping the spread of slavery meant your daughters will sleep with Niggers.  That was the meme at the time.   We don't teach that as a basic truth about what men like Lincoln faced -- and Lincoln most of all.   It's an ugly vulgar meme, but Southern leaders had no trouble shouting it to cheering crowds, and North politicians who wanted to defeat Lincoln, said the same thing.

Lincoln obsessed with equality for "NIGGERS"?

Why would Stephen A Douglas  say that? Not once, not twice, but repeatedly, in public, to his face.

This was NOT an isolated thing -- in fact Southern newspapers regularly called Lincoln a "black republican"  who as guility of "Niggerism"  and would destroy the white race.

Lincoln did -- of course -- parse words.  That is not amazing at all.  But what is amazing is how profound and extreme he was in pushing equality. Lincoln called it "equality under the law" .   

__________________________________________

DOUGLAS WON

Douglas beat Lincoln because he was able to show Lincoln as too radical for the "Niggers" 

Douglas would have defeated Lincoln for President two years later, but three candidates ran against Lincoln, all three were okay with the spread of slavery.  Lincoln alone was not.

Lincoln did get more votes than anyone else, but more people voted against Lincoln than voted for him.

 GOING FOR THE NERVE   

Douglas knew that whites were extremely afraid that black men might take  white women.  It was a common ploy among politicians in the North -- but especially common and extreme in the South.   Douglas hit that again and again.

Idiotically, many "scholars" today claim Douglas was for "popular sovereignty"  and did not care a whit if slavery expanded or not.   As Lincoln himself repeatedly showed, and Douglas's full speeches show, Douglas was rabid against equality of any sort, and got crowds into a frenzy speaking about white women "sleeping with Niggers".

But Douglas was not alone, he was just louder, and arguably the most powerful speaker, North or South.   But the South had their own stunningly loud and proud speakers, and they too attacked Lincoln -- to cheering crowds -- on  his "Niggerism". 




(moving soon to blacksally.com)



Most people today -- even "historians" don't seem to know how fucking radical Lincoln was for equality.  They seem to focus on a few quotes -- about 12 quotes -- out of 2.1 million words.

___________________________________


PEOPLE KILLED EVEN IN NORTHFOR SPEAKING AS LINCOLN DID 

Sure, quote Lincoln all you want.  Just get the full speeches, and in context. No one left a Lincoln speech at all confused.  He was effective -- he changed the minds of people he spoke to. 

Lincoln would often (in fact, regularly) seem to agree with a prejudice of the day, then "double back" and destroy that same prejudice, and argue for equality for all races.

Those who quote Lincoln in a way to make him appear uncaring or against equality of course do not bother to mention that the entire speech, the full speech. They may not even know or care of the full speech or context. 

Lincoln often blasted the prejudice he moments before seemed to espouse, as you will see below.  The full speeches are amazing, and radical as hell, when learned about in their entirety.


If you only go by a few quotes, out of context, and ignore what was going on, you can make Lincoln seem any way you want. 

But Stephen A Douglas, and Frederick Douglass, and Southern leaders knew damn well what was going on.   Anyone who dared speak up against slavery at all, were not only accused of wanting your "daughters to sleep with Niggers" -- they could be and were killed.

If you don't know that -- even in parts of  the North -- people were killed for being against slavery (and most don't have a clue) --- then you can't understand basic US history leading up to the  Civil War. 

Lincoln's friend, Lovejoy, was killed,, inside his own newspaper building, not far from where a Lincoln Douglas debate took place.



It's no accident that Stephen A Douglas -- who accused Lincoln loudly and repeatedly of wanting your daughters to sleep with "Niggers" -- told the crowds that Lincoln was just like those abolitionist such as Lovejoy.   Remember, Lovejoy was killed for being an abolitionist, in Illinois.  Not in the South, in Illinois.   Others were beaten and killed too, not just in the South, but in the North and West, for speaking against slavery.    
___________________________________________

THEY KNEW

There is a  reason Stephen A Douglas, Southern leaders, and Frederick Douglass himself, said Lincoln was radical to end slavery, radical for equality under the law.

Because they knew wtf was going on, The knew of the violence, killing, terrorizing that could happen, even in the NORTH, if the hate and fear mongers got some people to hate anyone against slavery, on the basis of "taking the white women".

It's a horrid and ugly truth, and it was the reality of the day.  

And they knew Lincoln's kick ass actions, such as in Congress 1846, calling out the sitting President Polk, for starting a war in order to steal land to spread slavery.

You will see a few words, at most, mention that Lincoln "disagreed" with Polk's position, but you never see what he called Polk out -- as others did -- as going to war against Mexico in order to expand slavery.  

Now, if you had no idea President Polk started a war to spread slavery, don't blame me. People knew it, and said this was the case, even Southern slave owners said it (Henry Clay, famously).

Lincoln could, and did, show in speech after speech the spread of slavery, and how slave power used means "foul and more foul"  to push slavery.   His personal letters show he was keenly aware of the killing sprees, tortures, relentless violence used to spread slavery. 

 
It is astonishing to me today to hear anyone speak of Lincoln who does  not understand that Lincoln's speeches, with the exception of Gettysburg, were nearly ENTIRELY about this, and nothing else.  About the history of the Southern leaders pushing slavery by nefarious means, including the Mexican War, Kansas Act, and Dred Scott.

Lincoln, of course, was exactly right. 


If you don't believe Lincoln, look at Southern leaders boasting of just that. See Southern War Ultimatums -- I show you below.

 See speeches by the US Senator who pushed Kansas Act through, who immediately went to Kansas, and there started killing and terrorizing to spread slavery.

You probably never even heard of that US Senator.

See also Jefferson Davis (you have heard of him) own "Adress to the People of the Free States"  stating empatically he looks forward to slavery in the North where he promises to put all blacks there
"back on the slave status in perpetuity".


Davis even said at the time he issued the address "so there weill be no confusion in the future".

Most people -- even many history teachers -- seem perplexed when you tell them Southern leaders boasted of these things, not sorta, not kind, not in a way.  And not some drunks at a bar.  The top Southern leaders, the ones actually doing the killing, or leading the men doing the killing, were boasting of this. 




We should have taught this all along in US history books. 

  Instead we allowed an essentially bullshit narrative about Southern leaders as men of principle who cared about states rights. 

Nonsense, when Kansas rejected slavery overwhelmingly, Southern leaders immediately sent men to Kansas to kill and terrorize, and force slavery there -- not just force slavery, but to violently silent all opposition to slavery.

Does that sound like state's rights to you?

In fact, Jefferson Davis would explain his twisted logic why state's rights was of no effect in Kansas Territory -- because blacks were not human being, but were "inferior beings"  and the Supreme Court ordered -(yes, it did, the Supreme Court ordered)  the federal government to protect slavery in Kansas, even after Kansas citizens overwhelmingly rejected slavery.

You should have been told this. You never were.

This is what Lincoln actually had to deal with.

Lincoln's main point.  The vile means used with increasing violence to spread slavery.

Lincoln repeatedly explained what was going on.   Southern leaders were boasting of it themselves -- pushing slavery until it would be all over the US, North South, East and West.


And if you don't believe or know Southern leaders were killing, and boasting of killing, to spread slavery to the entire US, North, South, East and West, I will show you their own documents where they fucking BOASTED of this.


A big reason US public is so stupid about Lincoln and Civil War --  Southern cry babies and school boards made it impossible for US text books to show Southern War ultimatums, Southern speeches boasting of killing to spread slavery.   There is not a US text book anywhere that shows something as basic as Southern War Ultimatums.  

What the fuck?   You can't possibly make sense of Lincoln, unless you know what was going on.

Ironically, the Mexican was not the first war created by slave power to spread slavery. And it would not be the last. 

 As you will see, slave power didn't stop with the Mexican War.  The Civil War, according to Southern leaders boasting of it at the time, was about spreading slavery.   Lincoln called them on that too.

Maybe it's time  you learned the full story. 







The most powerful speakers in US history  pumped up the fear and hatred of black males -- then claimed Lincoln was Nigger lover who wanted your daughters to "sleep with niggers".


But but but -- but but but -- that letter to Greeley!!!  

But but but -- that edited quote!

But but but -- those books with "footnotes and everything"  say Lincoln was "racists as anyone"  and "didn't really care about blacks.  Lincoln "wanted to send them back to Africa".

WHY CONTEXT MATTERS



WHY LINCOLN'S FULL SPEECHES MATTER



WHY LINCOLN'S ACTIONS MATTER



____________________________________________

According to Northern and Southern leaders at the time  Lincoln was the most radical abolitionist of the era. 

Southern leaders were especially focused on Lincoln, telling cheering crowds that Lincoln equaled "Niggerism"  and the literal destruction of the white race.


So every time Lincoln spoke, he was speaking to people who thought he might be "Nigger lover" who would indeed
" make your daughters sleep with Niggers".


You are not told this.

Douglas screamed this in Lincoln's face -- repeatedly.  In fact, he ran from side to side of the stage in at least two debates, and the "Nigger lover" rap was on Douglas used again and again.

Want  your daughters to sleep with Niggers?  Vote for Lincoln.

_________________________________________

That was not a side issue, not a throw away line. And people believed it. Lincoln did not win that election in 58 because enough people saw Lincoln as "Niggerism" which would result in black men "walking down the street with your wife, raping her as soon as they could".

Over and over -- and over - people North and South were told this.

Lincoln had to speak, therefore, very carefully.

Still -- despite the danger to Lincoln -- Lincoln's speeches were amazing for equality, amazing for why and how we must end slavery before it destroys the United States.

As Lincoln said over and over, slavery will destroy the United States, or the Union will destroy the slavery. One will survive.


________________________________________




Why would Lincoln's contemporaries say he was so extreme, so radical??

Did they not know about Lincoln's 8 quotes and  his letter to Greeley?

Did they not know that Lincoln didn't care about slavery, and used it for political gain?  (Hilarious, because Lincoln was lucky not to be killed much sooner than he was, for his "radical view" about equality).


____________________________________________

BLACK NIGGERS FROM HELL

NIGGERISM

NIGGERS WILL RAPE YOUR DAUGHTERS


There is not one US text book that teaches what Southern leaders, at the time, were screaming from the rooftops, as crowds cheered.

Not one text book that shows even NORTHERN papers calling for the execution of "Niggers"  who spoke against slavery, and implied the same treatment for whites who spoke against slavery too radically.


In the South, it was even worse, regularly Lincoln and others were accused of the certain destruction of the white race,  just by stopping the spread of slavery.

_________________________________


Quincy Illinois paper calling for the execution of Frederick Douglass for speaking against Kansas Act. 






 Lincoln was repeatedly accused of meeting white women and Frederick Douglas in the same carriage -- practically an open plea, to some, to kill Lincoln.

Lincoln was a bad ass - he even went to Kansas to speak, after Southern leaders made it against the law to speak openly or publish newspapers against slavery. 

In most of the South, and in Kansas, when Lincoln was running for Senate, it was a crime, punishable by torture (yes torture) to speak against slavery in the open, or to preach against slavery.

Yet people will look at you like you lost your damn mind when you tell them this. Yet even in the NORTH, Northern papers called for the arrest, and hanging, of Frederick Douglas for speaking -- let me repeat that -- SPEAKING - against slavery.

There is a reason -- a good reason  -- the signs at Lincoln Douglas debates (on Lincoln's side)  said "Free Speech"  and "Free Kansas".    Do you know what the reason is?  

They were referring to the laws against Free Speech in the South and in Kansas. 

 The Quincy paper above shows how newspapers urged death onto folks who did such thing. 

Were you ever told Lincoln even went to Kansas?

Were you ever told he went there AFTER it was a crime to speak against slavery there?

LINCOLN WENT

Did you know other famous men at the time refused to go to Kansas and speak?  You better be very careful even in Illinois what you said, so many people were convinced that just stopping the spread of slavery would doom the right race.


If you don't know that, you really don't understand the period leading up to the civil war, or Lincoln. 

And you don't understand what a bad ass Lincoln was.

When Stephen A Douglas repeatedly told crowds Lincoln wanted their daughters to sleep with "Niggers"  and that Lincoln went with Frederick Douglas and a white woman, he was urging violence.   Stephen Douglas did get other political opponents beaten, almost to death.

Douglas (Stephen A) knew that the emotional battering ram to use to defeat Lincoln, was to accuse him of "wanting your daughter to sleep with Niggers" 

It worked. Douglas won that race. 

_______________________________________________
So when Lincoln got up to speak, for his own safety, he better be very careful how he said what he did.  Lincoln did, at times, parse words.  But see his full speeches, his full actions, and you will see he was radical as hell.    The only way those today who would make him seem "reluctant"  or "ambivalent" about slavery is to not know or care what the full story is.



According to Northern and Southern leaders at the time  Lincoln was the most radical abolitionist of the era. 


This was a time when people were still being killed, even in Illinois,  for being "too radical" to free the slaves.

Not because people loved slavery -- it had nothing to do with that.  But because people were told, North and South, "Nigger men" will "sleep with your daughters".





If you don't know thatn you don't know the basics about Lincoln and what led to Civil War.

As Southern leaders grew more intense -- to the point of insisting they were doing the will of GOD, and that Lincoln was going to make white women sleep with "niggers" -- will you understand the the Civil War.

Even most people in the South were not pro-slavery.  But when Southern leaders and editors pumped up the fear and hate by equating just stopping the spread of slavery with death of the white race,  it worked to give those extreme speakers power, but it also worked to bring on the Civil War.

Certainly not enough people in the South were so extreme that they would kill to spread slavery.   Yet the Southern leaders issued War Ultimatums and were killing to spread slavery.

When you understand Southern leaders -- and their friends in the  North, pushed the "Niggers will get your daughters" meme -- you will understand why Southern men who didn't own slaves, and didn't even like slavery, would be rallied to fight.

BLUNTLY SAID.

Over, and over, and over,  and over, they were told freedom for blacks -- OR EVEN NOT SPREADING SLAVERY -- would get your daughters raped or seduced by blacks.

When you understand this, you can read Lincoln's speeches and "get it".  He had to parse words -- so he did.  Lincoln would have been attacked physically if he got up on debate stage and said "So what if your daughter sleeps with Niggers"?

Lincoln had to say he did not need a black woman as a wife.  He could just let her alone.

Get his full quotes (not edited bullshit).  Get  his actions -- kicking slavery in the ass sideways, hated for it, eventually killed for it, from 1846 on.

Oh you didn't know?  Lincoln was hated for being "obsessed with equality for the Nigger".  Lincoln, said a Southern papers "equals Niggerism". Your daughters will marry Niggers, the white race will be exterminated.

After such comments -- including Stephen A Douglas yelling this in Lincoln's face (yes, he did, see below)  -- Lincoln had to get up and defend blacks to a white nation that didn't really give a shit.   In fact, many white males in the North were as afraid of black men "taking our women" as in the South.

This is an ugly truth - ugly as hell.   But it the central issue the United States faced, and Lincoln had to answer those insults.  Did he want your daughters to sleep with "Niggers"?

Was Lincoln going to let "Niggers" walk the streets by your wife, your daughters?

Was he going to let them vote?  Sit on juries?  




ONE MAN FOUGHT BACK






Q ) From 1846 on,  why was Lincoln as a Congressmen hated by the South.

A,    Because he  stood up to President Polk, and accused him correctly of starting the Mexican War to gain land to spread slavery, Lincoln was a marked and hated man.   

Did you ever hear this even mentioned in any US text book? 

Did you even know that Lincoln (and others) rightly accused Polk of  creating a war, in order to add slave territory for the South?

You might not believe that is what the Mexican War was about (yes, that is what it was about - to add slavery land).  But why the fuck are we not told Lincoln accused Polk of that very thing?

This is as basic as it gets. Yet you can can't find any mention -- even mention - of Lincoln standing up to Polk because he was at war to help slavery spread.  How fucking stupid is that?

And it's not taught in any US highschool text book, that we know of.  Yet it was the biggest thing in Lincoln's life -- the biggest thing he did as a Congressman.  

You think they could fucking mention it as a matter of trivia.  Shit fire, they spend more time explaining Lincoln's growing a beard and a chat with a young girl, that the really important thing, calling out a US President as going to war to spread slavery.

Every fucking "historian" who has glossed over this, or not mentioned it, is not necessarily a dumb ass. They apparently just repeated the bullshit they heard, and were too stupid and lazy to read original documents at the time, and take Lincoln's own very clear letters about this, seriously.

 There is no biography of Lincoln, in the last 40 years, that even mentions Lincoln's amazing challenge of a sitting President, that we know of.  Certainly none that make this a BFD (big fucking deal), which it was. 

When Lincoln could not stop the Mexican War, even by openly challenging President Polk, Lincoln tried 40 times to outlaw slavery in the land we just stole from Mexico.

A very BFD.

And Lincoln's fight against slavery didn't stop there.  

Nor did the hatred of Lincoln by slave power folks and their paid lackeys in the North (Like Stephen A Douglas).

But more -- why the hell have you not heard of this?  And there is much much more.  As Stephen A Douglas said repeatedly: Lincoln, is "obsessed with equality for the Nigger".

No one told you Douglas repeatedly said Lincoln was obsessed with equality  -- in fact Douglas  fanned the hate and fear of black males having sex with white females, in the same sentences as he fanned the hate and fear of Lincoln.  He tied Lincoln to the "Niggers"  and told the crowd Lincoln wanted your daughters to sleep with "Niggers".

Then Lincoln had to get up and speak.

___________________________________________

WHO KNEW LINCOLN WAS OBSESSED FOR EQUALITY?

Southern leaders sure knew about it. "Lincoln equals Niggerism" said Southern newspapers.  Were they stupid?  Lincoln was going to destroy the white race, just by stopping the spread of slavery.  

How the hell do you destroy the white race by being against the spread of slavery?   Might seem strange to you know, but this made perfect sense at the time. 

Lincoln will destroy the white race, they said.  In speeches  He wants your daughters to sleep with "Niggers".

He will EXTERMINATE the what race.  And people believed it. 

_______________________________________________

NO NOT A FEW. 

 THIS WAS THE BIGGEST ISSUE

Most people today -- thanks to our history books that white wash this most basic issue -- have no idea at all how radical Lincoln was.   

Instead, they know a few Lincoln quotes, taken completely out of context,

For one thing, people were still being killed -- yes they were -- for being too "radical for the Niggers"  even in the North.  Did you know that even in Kansas, Southern leaders made it a crime to speak publically, or preach, against slavery?

Did you know people where whipped, tortured, killed EVEN IN THE NORTH --  for being to radical for the "Nigger".




So when LIncoln got up to speak -- he was speaking (even in the North) to people who not only would not "piss on a nigger if he were on fire" .  Whites in the North could easily hate and fear anyone who dared speak of ending slavery.  Men like Stephen A Douglas eagerly used this approach hundreds, if not thousands of times, not just in the debates, but in almost every speech he made about slavery after 1854.


__________________________________________

THEN LINCOLN HAD TO SPEAK

Douglas said Lincoln was radical "for the Nigger" .

Did Douglas actually believe Lincoln wanted "your daughters" to sleep with "Niggers".

Of course not.   But this was a common, very common, approach to anyone who was against even the spread of slavery. 

This is quickly obvious if you spend a few days reading Southern speeches and newspapers at the time.  You won't really learn it any other way, because the vile nature of those who attacked Lincoln (and many others) has never been taught -- the attack was about "Niggers"  taking white women.

Not sort of. Not kind of.  Not a few times, by a few people.

This was the typical and effective way to attack those who were at all against slavery for any reasons.

Even in the South, if you were not eagerly pro slavery, pro spread of slavery, you could be and were accused of being "Nigger lover"    or "abolitionist".

"Abolitionist", in much of the USA, even the North, was a derisive term, an insult, almost like calling someone a child molester now, in much of the USA.

Including in Illinois in the 1850s.

___________________________________________________________________

I can't help it if you didn't hear Lincoln. But you can read, right? Certainly historians and history teachers should know this very well. Instead, they don't know at all.

Even as early las 1890, people alive in the Civil War tried to remind folks how the word "abolitionist"  was a term North and South, of immense hatred by most people.  Abolitionist -- the way it was used then -- was almost as bad as being called a child molester now.  It was shorthand, and understood as such, for the destruction of the white race, for black men to "sleep with your daughters". 

Unless you know that, you can't understand why Lincoln would say he was not an abolitionist -- but that he hated slavery as much as any abolitionist did.

So historians should read his full speeches -- in context. And teach  his actions 1846 on. 

You won't be so easily fooled by bullshit. 





Wants your daughters to sleep with "Niggers"?

Mr Lincoln "harps constantly on this subject of equality". 

WTF?    That's from the Lincoln Douglas debates, and it's not some "gotcha" quote.  Douglas explained, sometimes for hours, just how vile life would be if blacks were allowed equality.


Blacks would destroy the white race, make living in the US a nightmare.  Lincoln would  "Burn us to death slowly over an open fire"  is how one Southern leader put it.
 Is that what you want, that is what you will have with Mr Lincoln? 



Men like Douglas shouted (yes shouted) and Southern editors preachers and speakers shouted (yes shouted) this message to the public.

For years. Get that in your head.  For YEARS Southern leaders, Southern preachers, Southern editors pumped up the hate and fear of blacks, in order to advance the spread of slavery.  Just stopping the spread of slavery was going to "EXTERMINATE THE WHITE RACE".

Remember this -- it's new to you.  Just stopping the violent spread of slavery was going to "EXTERMINATE THE WHITE RACE".


Your daughters will "sleep with Niggers".   Lincoln wants your daughters to sleep with Niggers, shouted Douglas. Yes, he shouted it.  It's a fucking shame, a travesty, we do not teach these ugly truths, because the ugly truth was what Lincoln faced.


THEN  -- after this tirade, by the best speakers of the day, Lincoln had to get  up and defend the black race, even after the SCOTUS officially ruled blacks were not human beings.  Really, not human beings.  No, Im not kidding -- NOT HUMAN BEINGS. 
_____________________________________________________


WANTS YOUR DAUGHTERS


TO SLEEP WITH

NIGGERS


Douglas (Stephen A Douglas)  not only said this repeatedly to crowds during the Lincoln Douglas debates (yes, he did)  Douglas actually ran from side to side of the debate platform in Charleston Illinois screaming it.

He yelled this into Lincoln's FACE.  Someone should have told you -- not just to show how vile Douglas was ( and he was) but to show how Lincoln lost that Senate race. Douglas was able to scare the shit out of white males.   He had enough convinced that "Niggers" would take their daughters.

This was not some throw away line -- the central message from Douglas to the people of Illinois was that Lincoln was a radical "Negro Worshiper" who would have your daughters sleep with "Niggers". 

That has been white washed --but it was the reality of the day. And then Lincoln had to get up to defend the black race, and argue for equality -- after, after, let me repeat this-- after, the SCOTUS had officially and specifically ordered (yes they did, read the decision) that blacks can not be seen as humans, but must be seen as property.




And do you know what Lincoln said? Hell no you don't.  Lincoln said those who "make mere merchandise" of the Negro, and "deny his humanity"  should be KICKED TO DEATH.

Lincoln was talking about the Supreme Court, and slave power.  Radical enough for you?

Kicked. To. Death.  That is what they deserved, Lincoln said in Peoria not long after Dred Scott decision came out.




Blacks will be "recognized" as property.  

Orders the federal government to PROTECT slavery.

Even in areas that  rejected slavery by 95% vote.

This is what the fuck was going on.  




Lincoln showing the absurdity and fraud of the Dred Scott decision
which would push slavery everywhere. He was right. 


Let me repeat that too. Lincoln said those who make merchandise of black men,and deny their humanity, should be KICKED TO DEATH.

This is how ugly it got -- because Lincoln was dealing with scum sucking pigs like Douglas and the SCOTUS.  Maybe it's time we learned, and taught, what the fuck was going on.  

Lincoln was not only going to have your daughters "sleep with Niggers"  he was going to have them walk down the street with your wife (unthinkable at the time)  serve on juries, and be able to vote.

This video does not show the ugly hate screamed out by Douglas -- and the same thing was going on all over.  

Still the video does show how Douglas (and many others) attacked Lincoln of being obsessed with equality for  "the Nigger" -- or as the screenplay writer changed it, "the Negro" 





Contrary to this, shouted Douglas, dozens of times, is the United States Supreme Court who ruled blacks can not be seen as human beings (not persons).  And in fact, MUST be seen, and treated, as property.

You probably never heard that the SCOTUS literally ordered -- ordered -- that blacks be seen not as human beings (not persons) but as property.


And further, the SCOTUS ordered- - literally ordered -- the federal government to protect slavery even in areas that had voted 95% against slavery.



Here are the words in the Court's order.  The United States "recognizes" blacks as propery  (not human beings)

In the same short sentence, the SCOTUS ordered the federal government to protect slavery.




And if you don't believe the SCOTUS actually ordered blacks to be seen as not human beings, read not just the order, but the decision itself fully. That is exactly what they ordered.

IF that is not not enough, Jefferson Davis himself made it very clear, that was basic effect of the Dred Scott Decision, and he was sending killers to Kansas on that basis.   Southern leaders, and Stephen A Douglas, gave dozens of speeches (and in every single Lincoln Douglas debates) explained this at length,   Dred Scott ordered blacks to be seen as property.








This is what Lincoln was railing against -- and if you don't know that, YDKS, you just know the white washed bullshit put out endlessly.  He railed against it in every debate, every speech -- yet he admitted he was bound by it as President, until he could change it by Constitutional Amendment -- which he did do, in the 13th Amendment. 






























In fact, when Confederate solders were captured early in the war-- and were asked why they were fighting, do you know what the said?

Some said this. Yanks want our daughters to marry Negroes"  This was the propaganda -- North and South - for twenty years leading up to the Civil War.  And it worked. 


Over and over Southern leaders pushed slavery further and further,  each time declaring the future of the white race depended on it.

If we do not spread slavery (remember this) the white race will be exterminated. 


_________________________________

"RADICAL AND EFFECTIVE" 

Because Lincoln gave over 3000 speeches, over 2 million words,  people can quote him any way they want. And they did so then and now.

But get his FULL speeches, not misleading " utterances torn from their connection" as Frederick Douglass said, but by the full picture. That means all his words, and all his actions.

Frederick Douglass was there -- he knew the slave owners, he knew Lincoln, and he knew what Lincoln was up against.

We can presume Frederick Douglass knew wtf he was talking about.  He claimed Lincoln was radical, swift, zealous and determined.


________________________________

Lincoln's enemies, North and South, said exactly the same thing -- that Lincoln was "radical"  "obsessed"  to destroy slavery.  

They were right.   His full actions, his full words show the most radical man in the US who was effective.  John Brown might have been more radical, but he was caught within two hours and hung in two weeks. Brown stupidly created a huge backlash in the South -- gave credence to the the propaganda that anyone against slavery would cause blacks to kill not just the white masters, but anyone right.

Ending slavery would be an invitation to rape and murder,  said some Southern papers. 

_______________________________________

LINCOLN NEEDED TO GET PUBLIC SENTIMENT 


Since the SCOTUS had already ordered that blacks could not be seen as human beings (as persons)  but they must be seen as property,  Lincoln was bound as President to respect that -- until he could get it overturned (which he did).



Southern leaders explained this repeatedly -- stopping us from spreading slavery would destroy the white race.











  

Lincoln had no public support in 1861 to bother slavery where it was.   He had declared slave owners deserved to be "kicked to death"   -- see his powerful speeches, in total.

But there was no "warrant"  -- to public sentiment, no legal ability or right to simply invade the South and force them to give up slavery.  No soldiers would join for such a fight.   So yes, Lincoln spoke of Union.  No kidding, and if he did not do that, the US falls apart, and slavery spreads.   So he made the right decision, even if your "history" teacher is so stupid as to belittle him for talking about Union.  He talked 1000 times more about slavery and why we had to end it, than Union, but that has not stopped "history teachers"  from implying Lincoln only cared about Union. Or that he only wanted to stop slavery.  



LINCOLN  STOOD UP TO PRESIDENT POLK 1846ACCUSED HIM OF STARTING A WAR TO FURTHER THE SPREAD OF SLAVERY

L




Get all his speeches, and his private letters. He was radical as hell, and then proved it by kicking the shit out of slavery as soon as he could get public support to do so.

In fact, every day of Lincoln's life, after 1846, was spent fighting against slavery.  


    
      To deride Lincoln because he spoke of stopping the spread of slavery,  is like hating your cancer doctor for first stopping the spread of cancer with drugs, before they cut out half your brain. 

 LIncoln's letter about Union,that so man wave around as prove he did not care about slavery, came when Kentucky was about to go with the Confederacy -- his letter was really to Kentucky, not Greeley.  And it worked, Kentucky did not join the Confederacy, largely because of the latter, and contacts Lincoln had in Kentucky, speaking there on his behalf. 

Lincoln had by that time given thousands of speeches on slavery, spent years fighting slavery, fought it in Congress, fought it in speeches, fought it in Washington DC to try to end slavery there.

No one even fucking mentions that, but waves that letter around. Read the letter closely -- typical of Lincoln, he parsed words carefully. IF -- IF -- I could save the Union, IF I could free the slaves.   Lincoln was a wordsmith, and wrote this way to make everyone think what they wanted.   Had he not done this, Kentucky goes to the Confederacy, and slavery spreads.  As Lincoln knew and said, without Kentucky, all is lost.  He would rather have Kentucky on his side, than God!

_____________________________________________

South's Five Year head start on the killings

What most people today do not grasp -- the South was already at war, already killing, already boasting of it, in Kansas.   Already the South had made it illegal to write or preach or vote against slavery in Kansas. 

See the 1856 speech and other documents, by Southern leaders at the time.  They were boasting they were at war.

Guess who knew this?   Frederick Douglass -- and most people alive in 1850's.

Guess who doesn't seem to have a clue?  Most US history teachers. It's not their fault, no one told them.





It was going to take war -- to fight back.  So far, Southern scum had been fighting civilians, citizens.

SOUTHERN WAR ULTIMATUMS

Within two weeks of Lincoln taking office, the South issued War Ultimatums.  Did you know that? According to Southern headlines, boasting of it, there were five -- five- - War Ultimatums.  They were already in Kansas killing, and already boasting of it, but do you know what the War Ultimatums were?

Five Ultimatums. All five, 1,2,3,4,5  were about the spread of slavery. Specifically into slavery.

And by this time, did you know Kansas was already a free state?  Already the citizens there voted against slavery by 95%?  

No, you did not know.







 Jefferson DAVIS wrote this officially.  See his book "Rise and Fall"

After Kansas was a free state, he demanded it be a slave state.

Yes, he knew Kansas had voted 95% against slavery.



Did you know Jefferson Davis specifically repeated the demand to spread slavery into Kansas-- after, after that territory became a state.   A BFD.  







That is what Lincoln was dealing with. 

 Davis also issued officially a promise to invade the North and have slavery there.  See it yourself, it's in his own paperwork.

Lincoln was radical and dangerous -- said the South - just for speaking against the spread of slavery.   Actually the radical fucks were those already killing and boasting of it, to spread slavery.  It's about time we quit the bullshit, and tell what the fuck was going on. 





Lincoln -- and anyone against the spread of slavery -- were "trying to make us sting ourselves to death".

Always the most extreme language -- and the crowds cheered such speeches, according to newspapers at the time, who boasted of it. 

Let me repeat that, crowds CHEERED Toombs, and others like him, who put the most hateful and fearful visions in the white man's heads, deliberately. Your daughters will sleep with "Niggers".

Our white race will be "exterminated" -- and Lincoln will cause that, just by being against the spread of slavery. 

That is what Lincoln faced.  It's not my fault you did not know. You should have been told. 




(Lincoln aptly compared slavery to a spreading cancer, and said first, we must stop the spread of it). 

Radical?  Zealous?  Swift?  Determined???

 Lincoln's own actions, from 1846 forward show is that Frederick Douglass did indeed know WTF he was talking about.   It helped that he was there, knew Lincoln. 


Douglass on Lincoln.  "We saw him, measured him, and estimated him; not by stray utterances to injudicious and tedious delegations, who often tried his patience; not by isolated facts torn from their connection; not by any partial and imperfect glimpses, caught at inopportune moments; but by a broad survey"

DON'T KNOW OR DON'T CARE?


It's almost as if  many "historians" don't know, or perhaps don't care, what  his full actions were,  and how radical he was.   It often sounds better to lay on the bullshit, one way or another.

You won't see much of the information we show here even mentioned in an any US textbook, and  rarely mentioned in a clear way, in most biographies of Lincoln. 

Even worse, if possible, while some might obligquily mention a few of these things, they never, as far as we know, show just  how radical Lincoln was. Because he was.

 All things considered, no one, not even John Brown according to Brown's good friend Frederick Douglass, was as radical and effective 

______________________________





Why on earth would Douglas say such a stupid thing?   We have experts -- and most history teachers now -- saying that Lincoln did "not really care" about slavery, at least not until half way through the US Civil War.


Actually in 1854, in fact for a 15 years leading up to the Civil War, Lincoln's full speeches -- remember that full speeches -- show an extraordinarily determined man to expose the South's plan to spread slavery against the will of the people, and announced more than once if necessary, the United States must stop the spread of slavery even by death. 

By death.

Why not quote that -- and other amazing powerful statements by Lincoln?  And show how radical he was, 1846 on, starting with standing up to President Polk.  

Did you know Lincoln stood up in Congress and accused (correctly) President Polk of starting the Mexican War in order to spread slavery for slave power?

Hell no you didn't know.

Did you know Lincoln tried 40 times after that, to push legislation that prevented slavery from going into the lands US just stole to spread slavery?

Hell no you didn't know that.

Did you know that Lincoln then tried to end slavery in Washington DC, and was from that point on, a marked man by Southern scum, slave power, and men like Stephen A Douglas?

Hell no you didn't know that. No one told you.  Not my fault no one told you.


___________________________________________

Why Ken Burns film about the Civil War sucked.....
yes, it does. 


NONE of this -- not one word of this -- got in Ken Burns "Civil War" documentary.  Why? 

Not one word of Southern War Ultimatums. Not one word of Lincoln's amazing actions, 1846 on, to kick slavery in the ass.

Not one word of Lincoln insisting slave owners deserved to be kicked to death.

Not one word of the SCOTUS ordering blacks to be seen not as human beings, but as property.  They ordered that.

Not one word of the SCOTUS ordering the federal government to protect slavery, even where it was rejected overwhelmingly by the citizens in elections (Kansas). 

Not one word of Lincoln going to Kansas- after Southern leaders made it a crime -- and speaking against slavery there. 

Not one word of 1000 things that should have gotten in. 

Not one word. Not one fucking word.

 Probably because Burns stupidly used Shelby Foote, who adores Jefferson Davis and the Confederate leaders, as  his "advisor".   If Shelby didn't tell him, Burns didn't know it.

 Big mistake.


Foote: Essentially a Jefferson Davis groupie.

Foote essentially gave the "Jefferson Davis" spin on the Civil War, and so omitted all Southern War Ultimatums, all mention of Southern declarations of War in 1856, sending two thousand killers to Kansas 1856, etc. 

If you don't know what the South did -- and Lincoln's full actions and speeches against that -- YDKS.

Sadly Burns did not get that in, at all.

He meant well, but he had no clue what he was talking about, and Foote was not about to tell him, of what was going on in the 1850s.

______________________________________________


Douglas and many others claimed Lincoln was a "radical abolitionist"  because they knew his FULL speeches -- remember that, full speeches. Not the out of context bullshit you are often fed.


Lincoln said slavery must end, or the US must end, one or the other.     One will die.

That's the basis of many of his speeches, notably "House Divided Speech."  Southern response was loud,  they claimed Lincoln had just declared war on them.   
In a way -- Lincoln did, in as restrained language as possible. One thing will live, the other will die.  The Union will live -- and slavery die, or slavery will live, and the Union die.

The House Divided Speech was entirely, 100%, every word, about the violent and vile efforts by the South to spread slavery against, remember that, against states rights.  Because of Dred Scott, slavery must be everywhere, or we will destroy it, and slavery will be nowhere. 
_____________________________________________________


IGNORANT APE

LINCOLN WILL MAKE YOUR DAUGHTERS SLEEP WITH NIGGERS

LINCOLN WILL EXTERMINATE THE WHITE RACE.


This is what crowds were told, North and South.  I can't help it if no one told you,  you should have been told.  It was that basic -- and it's basic to understand the times, and how brilliant and bad ass Lincoln was.
Not my fault that no one told you.

_____________________________________________________________________


" I HAVE NO WARRANT TO END SLAVERY" 



Linclon claimed -- and was correct --that he had "no warrant" to end slavery.  There was no law against slavery, in fact the SCOTUS ordered (yes ordered) the federal government to protect slavery in the Dred Scott decision. Literally ordered the federal government to protect slavery, even in areas that rejected slavery by 95% vote, namely Kansas.

Dred Scott was the law of the land -- and Lincoln had to respect and obey that, until he could (and he did) get Dred Scott overturned by the 13th Amendement.

When Lincoln said "I have no warrant"   he not only meant he had no legal basis to end slavery where it existed, he meant there was no public sentiment to fight to end slavery.

His own personal feelings about slavery were extreme -- which you can tell by his actions from 1846 on, and his full speeches.  He said, for example, that slave owners deserved to be kicked to death.

Try to top that.

________________________________________________

Lincoln also tried to stop President Polk from stealing land to spread slavery -- as you will see. He also tried to end slavery in 1846, in the District Of Columbia.

He also tried over 40 times to stop slavery from going into the land stolen (yes stolen) from Mexico by war.  I can't help it if no one told you USA stole land from Mexico by war -- Lincoln accused President Polk of that, and so did many others, including some Southern leaders themselves -- Henry Clay,  a Democrat in the South, accused Polk of the same thing, and rightly so, the USA really did concoct a deadly war, for slave owners, to spread slavery.


 was an "ignorant ape" who would "exterminate the white race"  and "torture us by slow fire to death"   by making the entire country of whites equal with "inferior beings".  

We will be exterminated, said Southern leaders, if we can not spread slavery. Never mind protecting it where it was, we must expand slavery or we will perish.



Warnings --

1) Under construction-

2) Crude language, because it's needed here.
____________________



Stephen A Douglas did  not just say Lincoln wants your daughters to sleep with "Niggers".  He shouted it, ran from side to side of the stage screaming it.



Newspapers at the time reported it.  Why the fuck have we taken out the violence and danger Lincoln faced -- and of course the slaves faced?   

_________________________________________

QUESTION:  Have we dared to teach, even 160 years later, the ugly  truth of what went on leading up to the Civil War.  And therefore, never taught what Lincoln actually faced?

Nigger lover?  Wants your daughters to sleep with Niggers?  Not by some nuts in the crowd, but by the most powerful speaker of the century -- Stephen A Douglas, to his face?



ANSWER:  We have yet to teach the ugly truth.

Even now, historians find  easier to speak in euphemism or bullshit. Sounds better. 

Omit that most whites at the time Lincoln ran for Senate hated and feared black men -- and were told by the powerful Trump like speakers of the day, to fear them.

Black men are going to take our white women -- the heart of the fear and mongering leading to Civil War, and brought up in every Lincoln -Douglas debate, and the "emotional knife" Douglas used to stab Lincoln not once, but hundreds of times, and in hundreds of ways.



Lincoln had to then get up and defend the black man -- who many people hated and feared.  Get  his full speeches, not edited BS, and you will see just how  radical he was.  

Get a few "torn asunder" comments -- as Frederick Douglass called them (out of context crap)  and you can make Lincoln appear as evil as you like to.

But as Douglass said, given all the facts, Lincoln was indeed, in action, and in effect, radical, zealous, swift, and determined.

If you know better than Frederick Douglass, who was there, please tell me the facts that show Douglass did not know what the hell he was talking about.

______________________________________

 Historians even now do not tell of the ISIS like tortures, violence, burning to death, of people who fought against slavery.   Southern leaders had WHITES killed, and tortured too, for trying to resist the spread of slavery, as you will see.

Why not teach that?    Why not teach the speeches were Southern leaders promised unending killing and violence until slavery was spread even into all Northern states?

Jefferson Davis himself boasted of killing ("by force of our arms" = killing) to spread slavery into the entire North.  Why not show that, and all that portends? 

Why not show the War Ultimatums that slavery MUST be spread, and spread by violence if needed. 

 Lincoln, however, had to deal with the real issues  --  the killing sprees, the war ultimatums,  the "machinations" that would push slavery to all of the US, North and South, or die trying.

And Lincoln dealt with the ugly violent truth that is not taugh in any US text book, but only after Southern leaders not only killing to spread slavery, but boasted of their War Ultimatums, and boasted they would keep killing until slavery was spread to the North (yes the North) by force of Arms.

________________________________________


Official  Southern documents actually make this very clear. Lincoln, by just being against the violent (yes violent) spread of slavery, was "torturing us to death slowly" 



Just allowing "Niggers" to walk down the street, on the same sidewalk as a white woman, was made to seem a terrifying invitation to the rape and murder of white women.



"Niggers" will be sleeping with your daughters  was not a side issue. It was the main issue -- the way Southern leaders (and Northern helpers) stirred up hate and fear.

Douglas just not just say Lincoln wants your daughters to "sleep with Niggers".   He ran from side to side of the stage screaming it, in Charleston Illinois -- and wisely so.

Douglas won that race, and would have won the Presidential race with the same approach, but two other candidates, also pro spread of slavery (like Douglas) ran, dividing the pro-slavery vote.

Southern leaders were pumping up the hate the exact same way -- Lincoln will make your daughters "sleep with Negroes" and this will destroy the white race.

Sleeping with "Niggers"  was the main "knife" as Lincoln called it, used to stab anyone who dared speak against slavery and the violent spread of it.









It was the central issue of the day, the raw nerve of the day. 





And Lincoln was vilified, North and South, for "wanting your daughter to sleep with Niggers... your wife will be with Niggers on the street".





People were still being killed, whipped, hung for daring to speak against slavery  --- even in Kansas, a Northern state.   And those were WHITE people who opposed slavery -- of course, blacks were treated much worse.


Did you know Southern leaders sent 800 men (mostly from Texas) to Kansas to kill and terrorize in 1856?    See Atchison's speech to these very men, below. 

A central them -- not "sorta"  not "kinda"  -- was the often repeated with great fanfare and volume, that Lincoln would make your daughters, North and South "sleep with Niggers".


That ugly truth never made it into any US history book, but we very much at the heart of everything leading up to the US Civil War.
_____________________________________________

Did you know those men made it a crime to speak against slavery, publish anything anti slavery in Kansas (it was already a crime to do so in the South).

Did you know Lincoln went to Kansas after Southern leaders made it a crime to speak against slavery - and there spoke against slavery?


North and South it was the issue that mattered.



The Confederate soldiers were told that  -- Yanks would make your daughters marry "Niggers".

_____________________________________________

WHY IS THIS NOT EVEN MENTIONED? 

How the hell have so many "historians" just whitewashed this basic and very real issue -- one that shaped not only Lincoln's actions, but shaped the entire nation?

Not one word -- not one - in any book by Eric Foner, Bruce Catton, or James McPherson on the relentless attacks on LIncoln for "being obsessed with equality for the Nigger,"  and all that portends.

Southern leaders pumped up the fear and hate of that black man (Nigger)  being with your white daughter. Why not mention that? It's not hard to find, Stephen A Douglas himself again and again cited this in his famous debates against Lincoln.

It was no secret, then.  But it might as well be a secret now. 

Lincoln had to say - hey hey hey, I never said I was for PERFECT equality, meaning marriage and sex between black men and white women. 



___________________________________________

Southern leaders and their lackeys in North regularly called anyone against slavery "Nigger lovers"  or "Nigger Worshippers".   


The term "black republican"  was more common than just writing "republican".   One Southern writer just wrote "Niggers = Republicans". 

And called for their DEATH.

___________________________________________

MOST CONTENTED LABORERS ON EARTH??

YEP.

Orwell much?

Slaves, insisted Jeff Davis, were "the most contented laborers on earth".   It was the evil "abolitionist"  causing slaves to be "dissatisfied".

Robert E Lee wrote that if "abolitionist" will stop their "evil course"  the slave owner would eventually be able to civilize the black race.  Learn about his torture of slave girls, from his own slave ledgers.  Pain, Lee wrote, was "necessary for their instruction"  and God knew and intended slaves "endure painful discipline"  which he paid others to carry out.

Meaning, he paid men to whip slave girls as he stood by screaming at the girls.  That was reported in newspapers then, and Lee validated those reports in his own hand written slave ledgers and letters.

Yet we teach Lee -- idiotically and fraudulently - as either not owning slaves, or being loved by his "servants".  Utter nonsense. 

From the 1830's on, Southern states made it a crime --punishable by whipping -- to publish or say things in public that would "dissatisfy a slave".

Orwellian much?

Let that sink in.  In fact, it was the "radical Negro Worshippers"  said Southern leaders, who "were against GOD"  that caused slaves to be "dissatisfied".

   Never mind that slaves never got near any abolitionist, and never heard these speakers, and were not allowed near newspapers.

Even whites in the South were punished -- including torture, hanging, drowning -- for owning the wrong book, or public comments and writings against slavery, or trying to vote against slavery.

I can't help it if your "history" teacher doesn't know or leaves out the original documents that prove all this, and was common knowledge then. 

You did not have to be pro slavery -- you just could not be anti -slavery. 

The country was told by leaders North and South that Lincoln was so "Nigger loving" and so "radical for equality"  that he was killing the white race, he would "exterminate the white race".

Exterminate.

The.

White. 


Race.


So then, after being called Nigger lover, after being described as "wanting your daughters to sleep with Niggers" -- Lincoln had to speak to crowds that fully or partly believed that crap. 

Unless you know that, you don't know shit about Lincoln or the civil war.

Lincoln would be amazed if he came back now, and people didn't know how much he was hated, and eventually killed, for being "a Nigger lover".

Leave a few facts out, and you destroy the basic truth of our past.  This is one such truth. 



Lincoln was "causing slave rebellion" in South by his "radical Nigger loving speeches"  according to a Texas newspaper at the time.

Never mind that it was illegal and virtually impossible for the slaves to learn any of Lincoln's speeches, or any news about him.

Never mind that Lincoln spoke very carefully, with no rancor, no bitterness.  In fact, Lincoln bent over backwards NOT to offend the violent Southern culture.   

SOUTHERN GOD OF SLAVERY 

'If you are against slavery, you are against God"

"God has silenced all opposition to slavery by his Holy Word" 

But Southern leaders took any comment that even questioned slavery as an assault on their manhood, their honor, and their GOD.

CRIME TO SPEAK OR WRITE AGAINST SLAVERY.

  In the South, it was a crime to even speak or preach against slavery, and preachers could be, and were, arrested and subjected to torture for simply owning the wrong book.  Did you know that, or not?  You need to know that, to make sense of Lincoln.

And people were killed and tortured even where Lincoln went, at the time.   No one told you that, did they?





_______________________________


According to Southern documents -  at the time --  Lincoln's speeches were so extreme, they caused slave rebellions in the South.  

No, Lincoln's words did not cause slave rebellions -- as Texas newspapers screamed at the time.

But pumping hate for Lincoln,  and convincing the public that slavery had to spread (for GOD) or the white race was doomed, was how extreme Southern leaders were.  

Crowds in the South cheered-- according to newspapers entirely approving of it, when speakers said they were spreading slavery for God as "punishment" of the black race.

You are not told that Southern crowds cheered the speakers of the day, for claiming GOD not only wanted slavery, but wanted slavery in order to punish the black race.

Guess who knew that kind of horror? Lincoln knew.

Guess who else knew?  Frederick Douglas.

That is an ugly truth, but it is exactly what was going on.  Exactly what Lincoln faced. Exactly what the country faced.

Not sorta. Not kinda. Not in a way. 

When confronted with the cruelty of slavery,  Slave owners and their apologists had no choice -- claim it was from GOD. Claim Lincoln and anyone against slavery was against GOD.




Just speaking (remember this) just speaking against slavery was a crime in the South, did you know that?  In fact, in US Congress, before the Civil War, Southern leaders in Congress wanted folks arrested in the North, who dared publish books in the North, against slavery.

Not only did they arrest and torture people in the South for public speaking or preaching against slavery, they wanted anyone in the North arrested for it, too.

_________________________________

"YOU SHOULD BE KICKED LIKE A DOG"  Stephen A Douglas to Charles Sumner

When Douglas (Stephen A) was screaming that Lincoln wanted your daughters to sleep with "Niggers" -  he was not just wasting breath.  He was sending a message to Lincoln: Back Off.

Others - including a US SENATOR -- were beaten almost to death for being too outspoken against slavery.

Lincoln wisely used his amazing wit and wisdom to defang Douglas enough, but he said Douglas was "using knives"  against him -- and the "knife" was about Lincoln wanting your daughters to sleep with "Niggers".

Very basic.  Why are you not told? You should be, it was the central issue of the day, and Douglas counted on the crowed being afraid of Lincoln, and Lincoln being afraid of being beaten, as others were.



By the way --Stephen A Douglas participated in beating a man nearly to death himself, bet you didn't know that?

And Stephen A Douglas told Charles Sumner, shortly before he was beaten on the Senate floor, that he should be "beaten like a dog
Remember that.


SHALL NOT DISCONTENT A SLAVE 




Jefferson Davis insisted slaves were "the most contented laborers on earth"  and only the lies about freedom caused them to not be happy laborers as God intended.

Did you know the basic spiel by Southern leaders was that GOD designed slavery, and slaves were happy with God's plan.   It was only the lies from the North, if the slaves would hear of them, that made slaves unhappy.

It was a matter of life and death, they said.  What if slaves learn that people claim slavery is evil?   They will "be discontented" -- seriously,  if slaves ever hear sermons or speeches against slavery, they will be "discontented."




Can't have slaves "discontented" now can we? 

 Never mind they were torturing slaves who dared tried to escape, and burning men to death who fought back against slavery.  It's a truism of human nature - when you torture, kill, oppress, enslave, you must must must justify it.  

So they justified it, and blamed anyone else for slaves being "disconnected".

Seriously,  Southern newspaper said Satan was "the first abolitionist".   Satan was against slavery. God was for it.  The Texas Declaration of Secession said if you were against slavery, you were against GOD.




Too bad you are not told.  You should have been.

Entire books have been written about Lincoln being "reluctant" to free the slaves, or that he "didn't care"  and was "just your typical white supremacist" .

You can cherry pick from about 12 Lincoln quotes --"ripped from their full meaning"  as Frederick Douglass explained, to distort Lincoln.



LINCOLNS FULL ACTIONS AND WORDS...  why not tell us?

Get the full quotes -- in context.  Over and over -- and over, and over, and over, Lincoln spoke against slavery, spoke of the evils, of how it is a cancer and will either destroy the Union, or the Union will destroy it.

Yes, Lincoln cared about Union -- no shit.  And he cared about it, for the exact reason he said.  Keeping the Union together meant slavery dies.  Either slavery goes, or the Union goes.  

Slavery will either spread -- like a cancer, or be killed itself, Lincoln said.  And the only way to stop the spread of slavery in US, was to keep Union together.

So stupid people -- even many academics -- distort Lincoln's full speeches, and ignore the basic fact. Lincoln was so eager to keep Union together, because otherwise, Southern scum lunatics (yes, they were) were going to spread slavery to the rest of the US.

And Southern leaders boasted of that. Southern leaders boasted (see below) they would spread slavery to the rest of the USA, including the North. Yes, the North.



Davis made it very clear.

He will spread slavery to the entire West and North.

Makes a difference, when you know what Southern leaders boasted of, till they lost.  Davis was not the only Southern leader boasting out the ass about spreading slavery by force.   Too bad you were never told. 






  More than anything, get Lincoln's kick ass actions, 1846 on.  We show you some of that here.

Douglass was not fucking around.

We won't either.

WHY PEOPLE THEN HATED LINCOLN

FOR BEING RADICAL TO END SLAVERY


Lincoln was actually kicking slavery in the ass -- 1846 on. 


Actions matter -- ever hear of that?

Lincoln did speak against slavery, powerfully, thousands of times. Read the full speeches instead of out of context bullshit.



But his actions were even more amazing.  

Lincoln  first got attention for what he did, not the speeches, which came later.  In 1846.  Lincoln was powerfully challenging slavery with his words and actions in 1846.


In 1846 he stood up to President Polk for stealing land from Mexico -- starting a war to steal it- - so Southern leaders could spread slavery into the newly stolen land.

_________________________________________


ONE EXAMPLE LINCOLNS KICK ASS
BRAVERY -- KANSAS TRIP


Southern leaders -- from the South -- made it a crime to speak or write against slavery in Kansas.  You are not even told that "detail".

But what did Lincoln do, after Southern leaders (yes, Southern leaders)  made it a crime to speak or write against slavery ?

He fucking went to Kansas and spoke against slavery there.

   Did your "history" tell you that?  No.  Very likely, your history teacher didn't know. 

Lincoln's trip  to Kansas after Southern leaders made it a crime to speak against slavery in Kansas.   



Lincoln was a "traitor"  and Southern owned publications called for his death, and the death of anyone in Kansas who dared speak against slavery and not obey their law to "accept and respect" slavery. 







All that is whitewashed away now -- people are told some watered down bullshit about this book or that being "banned".  Wrong, dumb ass,  there was not a list of banned books.  Rather, anything could get you arrested and or tortured in the South on a given day.  Including this woman who was tortured in public for saying the wrong thing in Memphis, just before the Civil War.





______________________________


Where Lincoln stood for speech against slavery

After Southern leaders made it a crime to do so.

After Southern leaders made it a crime to do so.

______________________________


This is the basic failure of US "historians"  re the US Civil War.  They have whitewashed the vile and violent actions of Southern leaders, including tortures, hangings, and whippings of WHITES who dared speak against slavery.

Southern leaders said Lincoln was trying to "exterminate" the white race by being so radical. 






Not all newspapers repeated Douglas "Nigger rant"  that Lincoln "wants your daughters to sleep with Niggers" -- they were more politically correct, but the message was the same.

Lincoln will make your daughters be with "Niggers".


_________________________________________

SO WHEN LINCOLN GOT UP TO SPEAK,   HE WAS ACTUALLY IN DANGER, EVEN IN THE NORTH.

Others were beaten, arrested, hung, or tortured for saying things that Lincoln dared say, when he said it, where he said it. 


_________________________________________

Part of the problem with understanding Lincoln -- we have never taught how ISIS like Southern leaders were, like their boasting of torture and killing to spread slavery. You can't understand Lincoln, unless you understand  how crazy and violent SOuthern leaders were. 





______________________________________






Lincoln stood up to President Polk and called him on creating a war against Mexico in order to double the size of slavery

Lincoln called Polk out on that. 

How many people know that?  Very basic, very pivotal fact.

Why not mention it, in a clear way.   You may seem this expressed is such weak ass language as "Lincoln had concerns about slavery in the newly acquired land"   What the fuck?

How about this -- Lincoln stood up to Polk, accused him of stealing land by killing, to spread slavery, and then fought against slavery going into that land, recently stolen.

Why not write things in a truthful, no bullshit way?

_________________________________________

Really -- how many people know?






This was common knowledge at the time -- even Southern leaders admitted it. Some were proud, but some were deeply offended.  Even slave owner and Kentucky leader Henry Clay spoke out epically against stealing this land for slavery.

Lincoln spoke up and challenged President Polk.  It was an open secret that the whole thing was done to steal the land, and that Southern scum would use the land to spread slavery. 


Yes, Henry Clay gave epic speeches against stealing this land, and he admitted what everyone knew anyway, it was a theft of land to spread slavery.  He was a slave OWNER,  but against stealing land by war to spread it.

Bet you didn't know that.

_________________________________

Then, Lincoln tried, in the 1840's, to get slavery stopped in District of Columbia.  And when he became President, he rapidly moved to do as President what he could not do as Congressmen in 1840s -- by his order, he ended slavery in District of Columbia.





Lincoln was hated for all this -- all the speeches he made against slavery -- challenging Polk in the 1840's, pushing to stop US from stealing land to spread slavery, then trying to stop that land from being used for slavery.

So Lincoln was very well known as someone who was kicking slavery in the ass as hard as he could.    The public was not with him -- he lost the Senate race, in 1856 and 1858.  One reason -- he was "too radical"   and "obsessed with equality for the Niggers"  said Stephen A Douglas.

Virtually all of the South hated Lincoln, and many in the North.  They accused Lincoln of "not supporting the troops".

Sound familiar?   

But since you are not even taught that US stole that land, killed, invaded, and stolen that land,  it's not that surprising  you are not told that Lincoln stood up against it, and challenged the President on that. 

But -"historians"  should know, even if they can't figure a way to tell you.  And they sure as hell should not tell you Lincoln was "nothing special" about slavery, because he was kicking ass, and would kick a lot harder when he got public support to do so.

TO DEATH 


The spot in Kansas Lincoln spoke -- after Southern leaders
made it illegal to speak or write against slavery in Kansas.

Maybe your "history" teacher needs to learn before they teach something? 


The reasons they said that?  Lincoln's actions and FULL speeches.  

______________________________________

We have yet to meet any history teacher who even knows Lincoln went to Kansas, and that Southern leaders made it a crime to speak against slavery in Kansas.  But Lincoln went there, and spoke against slavery, even though people were still being killed in Kansas for speaking against slavery.

Guess who knew that?  Frederick Douglass knew.








This was not a "throw away line".  Lincoln "wants your daughters to sleep with Niggers"  was the central message of the Lincoln Douglas debates, the emotional knife Douglas (Stephen A) used to stab Lincoln again, and again, and again.  And it worked -- he won.




Southern soldiers said the same exact thing -- you will make our daughters sleep with Niggers.

A quote by southern soldier, at the time, why they fought.

No one told you this either, did they?





There are entire college courses devoted to the Lincoln Douglas debates.   Thousands of articles, hundreds of books.  

Yet only one that we know of  even mentions Douglas screamed about Lincoln being a "Nigger Worshipper" in a clear way.  Even in that book, the revelations about this are far toward the back of the book. That book was by Allen Guelzo, and even  he did not see fit to make that a basic point.


And Lincoln said that too.   See his letter to Speed below.  Lincoln, and most of the people alive in 1850-1860, were well aware of the killings, tortures, and hangings going on in Kansas and the South, against anyone who spoke or published newspapers against slavery.

In Atlon Illinois, Lincoln's friend was killed,
possibly burned to death, 
for publishing anti-slavery newspaper.


No one told you that.  Yet, it's a BFD.

DOUGLAS ROLE IN PREVIOUS BEATINGS.

Stephen A Douglas was well known -- after he threw in with Jefferson Davis -- of using the word "Nigger"  in the Senate, and was admonished for it by Charles Sumner.  Later Douglas would sit by why Sumner was beaten almost to death on the Senate floor.   Newspapers showed Douglas seated nearby - smiling.



Douglas was also involved in the violent beating of another man --he himself took part in that one.  His partner, Senator Atchison, was the leader of 800 men in Kansas, and Atchison boasted of killing and torturing to spread slavery.

You are not told any of that, are you? Not one damn word! 





 The drawing of beating of Charles Sumner. Douglas is drawn in -- far right, shown smiling. Douglas taunted Sumner before the beating, saying he should be kicked "like a dog".

You wont see one biography of Douglas that sees fit to even mention this (that we know of).  Nor do they mention Douglas screamed repeatedly to crowds in the Lincoln Douglas debates that Lincoln "wants your daughters to sleep with Niggers".

Holy shit, if it was important enough for Douglas himself to scream this, repeatedly, and run back and forth yelling it to the crowds, maybe it's important enough to mention?

_______________________________________


  Later, Douglas would essentially confess to John Palmer, that he had been conniving all this while, but claimed he was really trying to set up Jeff Davis to be violently attacked, not Lincoln.






To understand Lincoln, you have to get his actions, and his full speeches, in context.   Turns out, Lincoln's enemies were right -- he was radical as hell for the "Nigger equality" in speech and actions.

But- - you have to get Lincoln's FULL speech, not the edited bullshit selected to distort. 








SEE FOR YOURSELF

_________________________________________

Lincoln video -- taken nearly verbatim from debates. 

 This is from a 1939 movie -- it does not have the "Nigger" words, nor the taunting of Lincoln for being with a "Nigger" and a white woman in a carriage that day. That was whitewashed. 

The movie did not show Douglas running from side to side of the stage shouting Lincoln wants your daughters to sleep with "Niggers".  But he sure did, as several newspapers reported at the time, and it was not that big of a deal to people then.




Douglas even claimed Lincoln was a "traitor" and a "revolutionary"  for saying blacks were human beings -- persons -- for purpose of the Constitution.


The US Supreme Court, Douglas correctly pointed out, had just declared blacks can not be seen as people for purposes of the Constitution.  You are not told that, either.  Lincoln was a "dangerous" man fermenting a "civil war" for not respecting the Dred Scott decision -- a decision that literally ordered (yes ordered) that the federal government MUST protect slavery. Jefferson Davis and Stephen A Douglas insisted the federal government must protect slavery even in Kansas, which had rejected slavery by 95% vote.





Killing of Lincoln's friend - possibly burned to death in the NORTH   for publishing anti slavery newspaper. No one told you.


Douglas even mentioned Lovejoy's brother in the speeches -- he did that to INCREASE the hatred of Lincoln.   


_______________________________________





_______________

Essentially we are taught a watered down version of Jeff Davis's narrative of "state's rights"   and a "complex set of variables about agrarian vs industrial economies."

Bullshit. When you read SOUTHERN leaders own War Ultimatums, own speeches, own documents at the time, they focused on violence - - remember that -- violence, to spread slavery. I can't help it if your "history" teacher  tells you some other bullshit.   Southern leaders themselves were practically shouting from the rooftops, they will spread slavery North and West, and they would kill to do so.





______________________________________

LINCOLN'S GENIUS 

Lincoln's genius was how to get the country to change their fear and hatred of blacks, at least enough to help fight the civil war. 


 In fact, while Lincoln did get the 13th Amendment passed in Congress -- it still had to go to the states.  Did you know that?  (Amazing, most people have no clue).

Do you know it was not at all certain the states would pass it! 

 But Lincoln's death -- yes his death -- created a huge tenderness of feeling for Lincoln, and played a major role in the state's ratifying it themselves.


"Public Sentiment Is Everything" said Lincoln in Ottowa Ill, one of the debates sites. 


LINCOLN "In this and like communities, public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it nothing can succeed.

Consequently he who molds public sentiment, goes deeper than he who enacts statutes or pronounces decisions. He makes statutes and decisions possible or impossible to be executed

Lincoln could not just "pronounce" things as president.  Even Northern generals at the time said they would not fight if the war was about slavery.

So Lincoln spoke about Union. Wisely so. 

  • Lincoln was hated by people North and South for being a "Nigger lover"  or "Negro Worshiper"  
  • LIncoln had an amazing and powerful history of kicking slavery in the ass at every opportunity, long before he ran for President
  • Per Southern leaders, Lincoln was going to "exterminate the white race"  just by stopping the spread of slavery.  


  • Lincoln was going to "burn us to death slowly" just by stopping the spread of slavery into Kansas -- which already rejected slavery by 90%.




MORE THINGS YOUR HISTORY TEACHER DOES NOT KNOW.
  • Lincoln stood up to slave owners and President Polk, accused them of starting a war to spread slavery into land the US was stealing from Mexico (yes, US stole land from Mexico)










_______________________________

Turns out, Stephen A Douglas was right, Lincoln did repeat "over and over" that blacks are equal to whites.   

But no one told you that. 


____________________________






 Remember, those boasting of killing to spread slavery, were not some drunks. They were the US Senator, and his men.  Their own documents.  Their own publications.

And his logic -- God gave the black race to the white race, to enslave.  Blacks were "so inferior" they were not persons, not human beings, for purposes of the Constitution.





Davis was clear -- Kansas must not just allow slavery, but respect and protect slavery.  Clear too, about his logic -- blacks were not persons, and could not be seen as persons.


Did anyone ever tell you that?   Did anyone ever tell you the logic of Southern War Ultimatums, was that blacks are not human beings?  But by decree -- inferior beings.


NO ONE TOLD YOU WHAT THEY BRAGGED ABOUT.

COMES LINCOLN... 
Lincoln, however, said this over, and over.  Dred Scott was part of the ruse, to make blacks not human beings, but property.   He said that, over and over in one way or another.  
Was he wrong?   No -- Davis boasted of it. Lincoln and many people said this -- Dred Scott decision was to make    blacks into NOT HUMAN BEINGS.  

Davis said that -- but he was proud of it.

You can't just go around hanging and torturing, nor can you go around issuing war ultimatums (see below) without bringing God and survival into it.  So, Southern leaders did just that.

Stephen A Douglas regularly, and with great fanfare, great emphasis,  used the "Nigger will sleep with your daughter" argument, but you could not possibly know that, from any US text book.  Not one mentions it, much less show how powerful and violent the arguments were about this. 




In an informal quick survey (we are conducting a more systematic survey) of text books and major prize winning biographies of Lincoln, we found no US textbooks even mentioned that Lincoln was hated North and South for being a "radical" for equality for the "Nigger"  who wants your daughters to sleep with "Niggers".

"You really don't know Lincoln, unless you know what ISIS like bastards he was up against.  US text books don't tell you about the religious lunatics, violent fucks, and sociopaths Lincoln had to defeat, to end slavery." 


Why would Northern papers call Lincoln a "Negro worshipper"?

Why would Stephen A Douglas, repeatedly, loudly, claim Lincoln was obsessed with equality for the "Nigger"  and wants your daughter to "sleep with Niggers"?


Why would Southern crowds cheer, and sometimes lynch or torture people, when told Lincoln was going to "exterminate" the white race by stopping the spread of slavery.
______________________

NO SPREAD = WHITE RACE EXTERMINATED

Let me repeat that -- Lincoln, they said, was going to exterminate the white race, just by stopping the spread of slavery.

EXTERMINATE THE WHITE RACE.

Southern leaders claimed Lincoln -- and anyone else -- who even spoke against the SPREAD of slavery, was really out to destroy the South, and would exterminate the white race by this "Ungodly"   resistance to slavery.

Slavery was "OF GOD"  and to be against slavery, was to be against GOD himself, said the Texas official Declaration of secession.  

 Individual Southern leaders claimed they would like to see every Yankee dead, because of the "heretic belief that slavery is wrong."

The North, said Southern documents, was committing a "grave sin"  just to be against the SPREAD of slavery.

And no one ever fucking told you?

Yes, it's  hard to teach this, but imagine trying to live through it.  This is why Lincoln got a bullet in the brain.


To justify torture, rape, selling children -- all the vile things that make up slavery you are not told about, you had to defend it by extreme means - by claiming it was from GOD.

SO they did.

  Because GOD ordained slavery, and the white race will be destroyed- -your daughter will sleep with "Niggers" as Douglas said repeatedly.

NO one even mentioned this.This is the hysteria of the era -- pumped up by men like Jefferson Davis, Robert Toombs, Stephen A Douglas  and others, in the North.

WHAT IF YOU ASKED AN HISTORIAN ABOUT THIS?

Go on, ask a "historian" or even a  history teacher about this.  They won't know what you are talking about, first, because they get their information from books, not original sources -- from Southern speeches, Southern newspapers, Southern sermons, Southern documents, Southern declarations.

But they will still pretend they know all this, then say "Oh I never said it was not a factor, sure, it was a factor, but there is a multitude of factors....."

Blah blah blah.   Southern leaders THEMSELVES said why the killed and tortured.  Not me. Southern leaders themselves wrote their War Ultimatums, not me.   Southern leaders themselves boasted and promised to keep killing till slavery was spread. 

This is the kind of basic shit you never heard of, because Southern school boards sure as hell was not going to allow this in the national text books.   Texas was, and still is, the state most responsible for US text book printing, and due to the school boards there, editing.

Nothing true and horrible about Southern leaders -- like their boasting of killing to spread slavery, boasting that anyone against slavery should be in prison, boasting they would keep killing till slavery was in all of the US.

Let me guess, no one told you Jeff Davis himself boasted he would like to see, by force or Confderate arms, invasion of the North and capture of all blacks there, and make them slaves, too.

Well, we show you that  -- but there is so, so much more.  And you never had a clue.
 New York paper Making fun of Lincoln for his "worship" of the Negro.  Lincoln said blacks were equal to whites under the law, any black is equal to any white.  Go read the Lincoln Douglas full debates, not the edited bullshit.
One paper in New York suggested Lincoln should obey Southern War Ultimatums -- did you even know Southern leaders made specific  War Ultimatums?  

The War Ultimatums -- Kansas (already a free state by this time)  must respect and protect slavery. Not just accept it, but RESPECT slavery and PROTECT slavery.

Kansas was a free state by then.


So when Lincoln said slavery will spread everywhere -- or it will end -- he was not kidding.  Southern leaders said the same thing, before and after Lincoln gave House DIvided Speech.

See, facts matter.

No one mentions that, not in any US textbook.  So it's impossible to know what Lincoln actually faced, from those text books, which have been whitewashed since text books started, to the satisfaction of Southern state school boards, mostly Texas.

In fact it seems wacky, when you first hear that Southern leaders were killing and torturing, and boasting of it, to spread slavery into areas that were already free states. But that was well known at the time. Lincoln wrote and spoke about it, but oddly, that's not given any credence in US text books. Those kinds of things, Southern school boards would not allow in books.  Not ever. Not once. 







Lincoln was not that blunt, in public. In letters, yes, he was far more blunt.  But in public, Lincoln spoke a much kinder and more diplomatic tone.  Yet stopping the spread of cancer (slavery was a cancer, that would kill the hose, or be killed if it could not spread) was always the central point Lincoln made.  

Slavery was vile - it was a cancer, it would either destroy the US, or the US would destroy it.

ISIS LIKE VIOLENT BASTARDS.

What most people today, even "historians", don't get, is how violent Southern lunatics were, and how they were proud of it.

Slave owners tortured women, sold children, and were PROUD that they did what GOD wanted.  If we taught history honestly, everyone would know this ISIS like lunacy of Southern leaders. But we teach none of that.

Jefferson Davis, and others, were used to getting what they wanted -- spread of slavery, over and over -- by violence and threats. Every single time South spread slavery, they did it by violence.  There was no exception.

I WILL WIPE ALL THE BLOOD UP
WITH MY HANDKERCHIEF
  Jeff Davis. 


Ulysis Grant quoted Jeff Davis proud claim that he would "wipe up all the blood" spilled below the Mason Dixon line, with his handkerchief.   

This is typical of the bravado and macho duck dance, Southern leaders always did. 

David Rice Atchison predicted all the South had to do, was a quick show of force, and they would get to spread slavery, as they always had before, by force, into Kansas and beyond.  Give me 5000 men, Atchison boasted, and I will kill every abolitionist in Kansas.  





Pollard, boasting.  Just voting for someone who was against slavery, was "a declaration of war" against the South




"We will annihilate from our shores".  As events proved, 90% of Kansas citizens were against slavery. Atchison tried to spread slavery there anyway, with quick show of violence.

It almost worked. 




WE WARNED YOU REPEATEDLY -- NOW YOU WILL PAY




And Atchison would have killed them all,  if he had been able to  hire 5000 reliable men, instead of about 1000 unreliable men, there only for the money.






See below, for actual speech promising war.  They were not kidding, and they delivered the violence they boasted about.

There was no desire on part of the North for a war against the violent, ISIS like South.  

Only one man tried to fight the South, in the South, John Brown, and he was caught in an hour, and hung in a week.


Who did Frederick Douglass admire more?    John Brown, his personal friend, or Abraham Lincoln?

Surprisingly to folks today, Douglass made it very clear, Brown actually harmed the push for equality and freedom.  Why?  John Brown's raid caused a massive backlash in the South -- because Brown played right into the hands of those who claimed Lincoln would exterminate the white race. 



 Speech by US Senator, bragging about killing to spread slavery, calling it a war "For the entire South"  1956. More important than any speech Lincoln made, and Lincoln makes no sense, unless you know what the hell was going on, like this. 





We will be destroyed as a country, or slavery will be destroyed, is the  blunt version of Lincoln's House DIvided Speech, which drove Southern leaders crazy.   Lincoln did not overtly threaten anyone -- Southern leaders issued macho threats and promises of death, Lincoln was not about to get into a macho man trade of threats with them.

But that is how Southern leaders took Lincoln's House Divided Speech, and Lincoln gave that speech, or used the idea from it, in many of his speeches. 

 Jeff Davis used his friend (yes, Stephen Douglas was personal friends with Jeff Davis) to scare Lincoln off the national state.

Lincoln didn't scare that easy, as you will see. 






Douglas knew which cities in Illinois he could call Lincoln a "Nigger lover" --or other such epitaph  - and which he could not.   The cities Douglas could call Lincoln "obsessed with equality"  included Quincy Alton, and Charleston.

Quincy papers spoke of Douglas going into his "nigger rant" against Lincoln, which no one was surprised about, except maybe your history teacher. 
   




Douglas, papers reported at the time, almost predicted Sumner would be beaten, and seemed pleased as the beating took place. Douglas used the same type of rhetoric against Sumner, as he did against Lincoln. 

Sumner was beaten -- 10 feet from Douglas's chair -- nearly to death, 34 wackes in the head with a  heavy gold cane.   The cane was and still is, shown as a bit of bravery in the South

 Sumner being beaten in US SENATE

Some of the men watching, are laughing.
Douglas reportedly was amused. 
.



Two years later, Douglas was once again essentially threatening Lincoln, by telling the crowd all kinds of things, like Lincoln wants your daughters to sleep with "Niggers".

How did Lincoln handle that?  See the video.  

Go on, to learn how LIncoln handled those kinds of charges, SEE THE VIDEO. You won't know unless you do, cause no one told you any of this in school.

Nor are you told, either, that Stephen A Douglas won --because Douglas was able to scare the voters re Lincoln's love for the "Nigger"  and the danger of being against just the spread of slavery.  
You hear this nonsense about Douglas being for "right of the people to choose".   Sounds nice, and stupidly historians have accepted Douglas public con game.  But behind the scenes, as Lincoln knew, and so many others did too, Douglas had helped Jeff Davis and David Rice Atchison force, or try to force, slavery into Kansas.

Douglas did beat Lincoln for Senate; Douglas's  enemy in the Senate (Charles Sumner) was in a coma for six months.  And thousands of people would die, before the violent men who promised killing sprees, and actually committed killing sprees, were defeated. 

Douglas fear and hate mongering, worked,  because he stayed in the Senate, and was able to help his friends Jeff Davis and David Rice Atchison behind the scenes as Chairman of the House and Senate Committee on Kansas.

 This led directly to the Civil War.  Lincoln could not overcome the stigma of his "Nigger Worship"  as New York paper called it.

So how does a "Nigger worshiper"  who "wants your daughters to sleep with Niggers"  end  up being called all kinds of bad things later?


_____________________________________________
This same man -- Stephen A Douglas -- repeatedly and dramatically told crowd after crowd that Lincoln wanted their daughters to sleep with "Niggers".

Southern newspapers were even worse -- "Lincoln will destroy the white race"  Lincoln will make your children work besides blacks, your daughters sleep with blacks, etc etc.

Every politician who was against slavery got this kind of treatment -- Lincoln just got it a lot worse.  He got it in person, spoken by the most powerful speaker of the day -- Stephen A Douglas.

 You have not heard any of this, UNTIL NOW.

____________________________


You didn't have to be a slave owner to be afraid of Lincoln -- North and South, liars like Stephen A Douglas, many newspapers, and almost all Southern leaders, made damn sure  you saw Lincoln as giving away your daughter to a "Nigger".

 _______________________________________________





Above all Lincoln was EFFECTIVE.

______________________________________________________

WHEN WE FULLY KNEW HIM
"It mattered little to us what language he might employ on special occasions, it mattered to us, when we fully knew him, whether he was swift or slow in his [actions] "


__________________________________________________________

To be fair -- the South did warn the North that they would have to make it a crime to publish articles against slavery --see this from Congressional record, 1836.  And soon after, they did indeed, in Virginia, pass such laws...



Closer look..

Not long after -- since the North refused to make it against the law to write against slavery in North, anything which might make it to the South, the state of Virginia did indeed to exactly that -- made it a crime to have or publish or EVEN SPEAK against slavery.

See this.



All other slave states passed similiar laws, and citizens could be tortured -- even preachers could be tortured, for just owning the wrong book. Very ISIS like.

Guess who knew that? 

Lincoln. And Frederick Douglass.  And most people alive in 1840s - 1860 in the USA.   

But no one told you, because it's not even mentioned, much less emphasized, in US text books.   But nothing came close to perpetuating slavery, and expanding slavery, than making it a crime to speak or write against it.

_________________________________________________________

WHY NO ONE ELSE WAS MORE RADICAL

You hear or read all this shit by "scholars" who claim Lincoln was reluct

Some "scholars" will name abolitionist like Garrison,  and others, and claim Lincoln fell short of their dedication to end slavery. None of those white men -except John Brown -- dared even travel to where Lincoln went, or spoke to crowds Lincoln spoke to.

Lincoln speaking in Kansas is one example.

__________________________________________________________

WHO ELSE.  JUST THE FACTS

If you don't know even US Senators were attacked, on and off the Senate floor, one was beaten almost to death, for speaking about things Lincoln spoke about, you don't know much
____________________________________________



Lincoln had to deal with that -- and he did.  This is a perfect example of  how Lincoln dealt with it, see the video.

"LINCOLN OBSESSED WITH EQUALITY FOR THE NIGGER"
DOUGLAS DID NOT USE WORD NEGRO -- HE USED "NIGGER"  AND RAN FROM ONE END
OF THE STAGE YELLING IT. 

____________________________

WORD GAMES.  THIS IS NOT A FUCKING GAME.





Detractors game -- is to quote Lincoln out of context, and ignore his actions.




You can pull up 500 Lincoln quotes, in about 2 seconds.  Fine.  Get all Lincoln quotes, there are plenty that kick ass-- 



But quotes won't do it -- you need context, and his full actions. 


 Springfield, Illinois
August 24, 1855
Dear Speed:

You know what a poor correspondent I am. Ever since I received your very agreeable letter of the 22nd. of May I have been intending to write you in answer to it. 

You suggest that in political action now, you and I would differ. I suppose we would; not quite as much, however, as you may think. You know I dislike slavery; and you fully admit the abstract wrong of it. So far there is no cause of difference. But you say that sooner than yield your legal right to the slave -- especially at the bidding of those who are not themselves interested, you would see the Union dissolved. I am not aware that any one is bidding you to yield that right; very certainly Iam not. I leave that matter entirely to yourself.

 I also acknowledge your rights and my obligations, under the constitution, in regard to your slaves. I confess I hate to see the poor creatures hunted down, and caught, and carried back to their stripes, and unrewarded toils; but I bite my lip and keep quiet. In 1841 you and I had together a tedious low-water trip, on a Steam Boat from Louisville to St. Louis. You may remember, as I well do, that from Louisville to the mouth of the Ohio, there were, on board, ten or a dozen slaves, shackled together with irons. That sight was a continued torment to me; and I see something like it every time I touch the Ohio, or any other slave-border. It is hardly fair for you to assume, that I have no interest in a thing which has, and continually exercises, the power of making me miserable. You ought rather to appreciate how much the great body of the Northern people do crucify their feelings, in order to maintain their loyalty to the Constitution and the Union.

I do oppose the extension of slavery, because my judgment and feelings so prompt me; and I am under no obligation to the contrary. If for this you and I must differ, differ we must.

 You say if you were President, you would send an army and hang the leaders of the Missouri outrages upon the Kansas elections; still, if Kansas fairly votes herself a slave state, she must be admitted, or the Union must be dissolved. 

But how if she votes herself a slave State unfairly -- that is, by the very means for which you say you would hang men? Must she still be admitted, or the Union be dissolved? 

That will be the phase of the question when it first becomes a practical one.

In your assumption that there may be a fair decision of the slavery question in Kansas, I plainly see you and I would differ about the Nebraska-law. I look upon that enactment not as a law, but as violence from the beginning. It was conceived in violence, passed in violence, is maintained in violence, and is being executed in violence. I say it was conceived in violence, because the destruction of the Missouri Compromise, under the circumstances, was nothing less than violence. It was passed in violence, because it could not have passed at all but for the votes of many members in violence of the known will of their constituents. 

It is maintained in violence because the elections since, clearly demand it's repeal, and this demand is openly disregarded. You say men ought to be hung for the way they are executing that law; and I say the way it is being executed is quite as good as any of its antecedents. ( ed. Meaning, this is the way slavery has always been spread) 

It (Kansas Act) is being executed in the precise way which was intended from the first; else why does no Nebraska man express astonishment or condemnation? Poor Reeder is the only public man who has been silly enough to believe that any thing like fairness was ever intended; and he has been bravely undeceived.


That Kansas will form a Slave Constitution, and, with it, will ask to be admitted into the Union, I take to be an already settled question; and so settled by the very means you so pointedly condemn.

 By every principle of law, ever held by any court, North or South, every negro taken to Kansas is free; yet, in utter disregard of this -- in the spirit of violence merely -- that beautiful Legislature gravely passes a law to hang men who shall venture to inform a negro of his legal rights. This is the substance, and real object of the law. If, like Haman, they should hang upon the gallows of their own building, I shall not be among the mourners for their fate.

In my humble sphere, I shall advocate the restoration of the Missouri Compromise, so long as Kansas remains a territory; and when, by all these foul means, it seeks to come into the Union as a Slave-state, I shall oppose it. I am very loth, in any case, to withhold my assent to the enjoyment of property acquired, or located, in good faith; but I do not admit that good faith, in taking a negro to Kansas, to be held in slavery, is a possibility with any man.

 Any man who has sense enough to be the controller of his own property, has too much sense to misunderstand the outrageous character of this whole Nebraska business.

But I digress. In my opposition to the admission of Kansas I shall have some company; but we may be beaten. If we are, I shall not, on that account, attempt to dissolve the Union.

On the contrary, if we succeed, there will be enough of us to take care of the Union. I think it probable, however, we shall be beaten.

 Standing as a unit among yourselves, you can, directly, and indirectly, bribe enough of our men to carry the day -- as you could on an open proposition to establish monarchy. Get hold of some man in the North, whose position and ability is such, that he can make the support of your measure -- whatever it may be -- a democratic party necessity, and the thing is done.

 Appropos [sic] of this, let me tell you an anecdote. Douglas introduced the Nebraska bill in January. In February afterwards, there was a call session of the Illinois Legislature. Of the one hundred members composing the two branches of that body, about seventy were democrats. These latter held a caucus, in which the Nebraska bill was talked of, if not formally discussed. It was thereby discovered that just three, and no more, were in favor of the measure.

 In a day of two Dougla's [sic] orders came on to have resolutions passed approving the bill; and they were passed by large majorities!!! 

The truth of this is vouched for by a bolting democratic member. The masses too, democratic as well as whig, were even, nearer unanimous [sic] against it; but as soon as the party necessity of supporting it, became apparent, the way the democracy began to see the wisdom and justice of it, was perfectly astonishing.



You say if Kansas fairly votes herself a free state, as a Christian you will rather rejoice at it. All decent slaveholders talk that way; and I do not doubt their candor. But they never vote that way.

 Although in a private letter, or conversation, you will express your preference that Kansas shall be free, you would vote for no man for Congress who would say the same thing publicly.

 No such man could be elected from any district in a slave-state. You think Stringfellow & Co. ought to be hung; and yet, at the next presidential election you will vote for the exact type and representative of Stringfellow. 


The slave-breeders and slave-traders, are a small, odious and detested class, among you; and yet in politics, they dictate the course of all of you, and are as completely your masters, as you are the master of your own negroes.

 You inquire where I now stand. That is a disputed point -- I think I am a whig; but others say there are no whigs, and that I am an abolitionist. When I was in Washington I voted for the Wilmot Proviso as good as forty times, and I never heard of any one attempting to unwhig me for that. I now do no more than oppose the extension of slavery.


I am not a Know-Nothing. That is certain. How could I be? How can any one who abhors the oppression of negroes, be in favor or degrading classes of white people? Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes

" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy [sic].
Mary will probably pass a day to two in Louisville in October. My kindest regards to Mrs. Speed. On the leading subject of this letter, I have more of her sympathy that I have of yours. And yet let me say I am


Yours friend forever


A. Lincoln

Every "history teacher" I ever met, insists they know the Lincoln Douglas debates well, and read them all.

  Not one of them seems to have a clue that Kansas Act was, as Lincoln said repeatedly, was a ruse, a violent effort, to spread slavery where it could not possibly go by an honest vote of the citizens.

Why don't most history teachers  know that?  No one told them.

SOUTHERN



 WAR ULTIMATUMS

SENATOR DAVID RICE ATCHISON   
MADE IT CLEAR ..



. David Rice Atchison boasted of it.   He made his own war ultimatums, in his own speeches and writings.  We will kill until we have slavery to the Pacific.

Atchison even told his men, they would be "amply paid" and could keep anything they stole from the houses they looted.



CHOPPING WORDS ----


WTF?  Was Frederick Douglass stupid?   Did he not know about Lincoln's letter to Greeley at New York Times? (Yes, he knew, he ran it in his own paper).   See more about that famous letter, below...

Yes of course Douglass knew, and he knew the "full measure" of Lincoln, not the edited or out of context bullshit.

And more, Douglass knew what was going on at the time. 


Lincoln was called  "obsessed with equality for the Nigger" -- repeatedly, loudly, proudly, in public, to his face, by the most powerful speaker of that generation.   And no one ever bothered to tell you. 

Not in any text book. Not one text book. Let me repeat that, not one single text book in US, has ever made it clear, Lincoln was repeatedly, emphatically, to his face, charged again and again, with "obsession for equality for the Nigger".

But those text books will include partial quotes, out of context,  by Lincoln, to claim Lincoln didn't really care, or Lincoln was reluctant.


Bullshit -- Lincoln was reluctant, okay, reluctant to get his head smashed in, or a get a bullet to the brain, any sooner than he did. And such things did befall folks who, even in Illinois, were perceived as too radical for the "black man"  because the "black man" wanted to "sleep with, be with, your daughter".





Black men. Would take. Your wife. Your daughter.


Lincoln would "slowly burn us to death"  by not allowing the spread of slavery. That's right, very clear, just not allowing the spread of slavery -- was like burning us to death.

The open letters to the public by other Southern governers, much the same thing. Lincoln would destroy the WHITE RACE, just by not allowing us to spread slavery.


That was the big fear, and Southern leaders jumped up and down on that raw never. Lincoln was vile -- he was destroying the white race, don't believe him that he does not intend to force the South to give up slavery.  He will destroy us, just by trying to keep slavery out of the rest of the country.

Were you ever told? FUCK NO. 



Go on, go find any text book that mentions it, much less shows what a BFD that meme of Lincoln being obsessed with equality was, and the impact it had on how he stayed alive, and how he hoped to win elections despite the hateful physical attacks on others, including his friends, and the threats to him personally.

No one told you that, did they?.

And that was in the NORTH -- remember that.

_________________________________________________

SOUTH OF COURSE, WAS EVEN WORSE, MORE VIOLENT THREATS - PROMISES

In the South, Lincoln was accused of destroying the white race.  Southern editors and leaders boasted that electing Lincoln -- or anyone against the spread -- yes spread -- of slavery was like an ACT OF WAR.

Did you ever see that in your history book. Electing anyone against the SPREAD of slavery was an act of war?   Think about that, think real hard. 

And they boasted of it, they did not admit it, they fucking boasted of it. And they were not bluffing. 


To understand those times, you either know, or you don't know,  how important it was that  Lincoln was regularly called "Nigger lover"  and "Negro Worshiper" by powerful people in the NORTH.  Not the South -- they were even worse.  

But in the NORTH, Lincoln was hated by the most powerful people in Washington, including US Senators Davis, Douglas, and David Rice Atchison, because he was"obsessed with equality for the Nigger".

___________________________________________________________________

WHY POLITICS MATTER -- ITS ABOUT POWER, NOT POLICY

Did Jefferson Davis hate Lincoln personally, did Stephen A Douglas?   Did Davis really believe God sent him the black race to enslave?   Did Davis really believe it was cruel to blacks NOT to enslave them?

No.   But Davis, Douglas, Atchison, Toombs, etc, got power, got status, got prestige, got money, from spouting such things.   Yet their followers, who believed this shit, were dangerous. God ordained slavery - the white race will be exterminated? - Lincoln wants your daughters to sleep with "Niggers"?

It worked.

All those things, and many more, Southern leaders shouted to crowds, said in 100 ways, and it worked.   Those who did that demagoguery got the leadership, got the presidency of confederacy, got to be US Senators.

Did Foner ever tell you that Lincoln was widely accused of being a "Nigger lover"?  Did McPherson, Catton?Did Ken Burns mention anything like it? 

No. Only one historian I know mentioned this basic aspect, and he did that rather late in one book, that book is " Lincoln and Douglas, by Allen Guelzo.


But even Guelzo presents the "Nigger rant" in an almost comical way, showing Douglas went from side to side of the stage shouting it, perhaps even drunk.   The "Nigger rant"  was always about white women being with,sleeping with, or walking with black women.

NO JOKING MATTER  -- MATTER OF LIFE, DEATH, AND WAR.
So even when this "Nigger rant" habit of Douglas is mentioned, you don't see it, or hear of it, in context of the killing sprees, the violence, the hangings and tortures.   Southern leaders hit this again, and again.  If we do not spread slavery, we will be equal to blacks, and we will be exterminated, or have to live in equality with them.

Unless you understand that -- you can not know or even imagine how fucking radical Lincoln was, to stand up, and push back, and claim in the most amazing powerful term, that "any slave is the equal of me any and man.....  she is my equal, and the equal of Judge Douglas.

Gee-- wonder why they never show those parts of the speech? Wonder why they don't show how fucking stunning Lincoln was, to push back against the "You want our daughters to sleep with Niggers" accusation.

________________________________________________________ 

BUT GUESS WHO KNEW ALL THIS?   

Guess who knew Lincoln was called "Nigger lover" who wants your daughters to sleep with "Niggers".  Guess who knew what happened to men that were thusly accused (they could be killed).  

Frederick Douglass knew.  Lincoln knew. Stephen A Douglas knew, Jefferson Davis knew. 


Hell yes, Stephen A Douglas knew -- that's why he used this approach. That's why he brought it up, and spoke of it for hours, wove it into every speech.   This was the basic message of Stephen A Douglas  "Mr. Lincoln is radical and obsessed about equality, and would have your daughters sleep with Niggers".

 Every Southern leader knew the power of hate and fear by whites, of black men "sleeping with white women" --and how that would "exterminate the white race". Oddly, though, Southern leaders were not nearly as quick to shout "Nigger".  Douglas did that, very likely to show his Southern friends (like Jeff Davis) that he was worthy of their support of President and or Chairman of House and Senate Committee on Kansas.

This is so vile -so strange- - to our ears, but it was not strange or even unusual at the time.  Your "history books" just skim over it, or not mention it, at all.


ut if you read Southern books, Southern speeches, Southern newspapers, Southern documents, Southern letters, at the time, and if you know of the ongoing killing and torturing and terror used by the South -- proudly -- to spread slavery, you won't be so easily fooled by academic bullshitters like Foner and McPherson and others.  

But it was central to the times, to the elections, and to the nation.  How Lincoln was hated for being a "Nigger lover" and who wants your daughter to "sleep with Niggers"  was the very real, very powerful, and very dangerous meme -- that worked.

This has been whitewashed for at least 100 years.  Southern crybabies and liars have never allowed that stark, ugly truth into any US text book.

In fact, entire books, entire series of books, have painted LIncoln as a "racist who wanted to send blacks to Africa"   and paint Southern leaders as principled men who intended to end slavery.   Such bizzaro bullshit is accepted as rational, and worthy of merit.

Fuck that. Learn what the hell was going on.

To his face, repeatedly, the best speaker of the 19th century, beat Lincoln in a race for US Senate, by calling Lincoln "obsessed with equality for the Nigger" 
The reason it's important -- you are not taught the hatred and fear of black men, taking white women,  and how THAT was central to the Civil War.   Southern leaders made it very clear -- if they could not spread slavery, the white race would be destroyed.

The hate and fear pushed by Southern leaders, and by men like Stephen A Douglass, is simply not mentioned in any meaningful way, by any historian in the last 50 years. Whitewashed by bullshit. 

_______________________________


I was almost 60 years old, before I realized  historians, like most folks, are full of bullshit.  

Sadly, "historians"  are often afraid to praise Lincoln too much, lest they be accused of hero worship.  Others just trash Lincoln for attention.

Some trash Lincoln,  omit  his actions (like his amazing battle in Congress to stop the war with Mexico, and to prevent slavery in the territory we stole from Mexico).

Why not show that amazing story? 

Maybe some bullshitters want to "appear balanced"  -- and fuck all that. I'm still waiting for a biography of Lincoln that tells what he did.  You get maybe one or two sentences about Lincoln push back against US theft of land to spread slavery, and they dont even mention, Lincoln rightly accused the South and Polk of creating a war to spread slavery.

When you learn what Lincoln did --  and see what the fuck was going on -- it's hard to disagree with Frederick Douglass, paraphrased,  Lincoln was a bad ass, radical mother fucker.

YES AT TIMES LINCOLN WISELY PARSED WORDS

Read any -- any -- US text book, you would never have a clue about that, or hardly a clue, from any Lincoln biography that I know of.

NIGGER LOVER
NIGGER WORSHIPER
LINCOLN WANTS YOUR DAUGHTER TO SLEEP WITH NIGGERS....


These came from NORTHERN politicians and NORTHERN PRESS.  Bet no one told you that.  


Not sorta, not kinda.  That was the big hammer, the sometimes spoken clearly, sometimes spoken in code, told to demonize those who sought to end slavery. That too, is completely, 100%, absent from US text books.  




Even as early as 1890, "old timers" like one of the men who founded the GOP,   had to remind the public that at one time, abolitionist was a dirty word, on parr now with child molesters in some areas.  

Palmer also explained how vile and violent the south was.  Southern leaders used to brag -- before they lost the Civil War, that they would spread slavery anywhere they wanted, and Northern men would run away.   Jeff Davis himself said he could wipe up all the blood spilled in the South, if any way came because of the efforts to spread slavery.  He did not believe anyone would stand up to the manhood of the South, and he was nearly correct, until a man named John Brown proved them wrong, in Kansas,



A GROUP OF SURVIVORS 



FROM ATCHISON'S RAID INTO 1856  LAWRENCE
  1890

Who did what, to whom, is real history. All else is bullshit.






STEPHEN A DOUGLAS  Speaking, making the case, a vote for Lincoln is a vote for your wife being with "Niggers" 

"The last time I came here to make a speech, while talking from the stand to you, people of Freeport,  I saw a carriage—and a magnificent one it was—drive up and take a position on the outside of the crowd; a beautiful young lady was sitting on the box-seat, whilst Fred Douglass and her mother reclined inside, and the owner of the carriage acted as driver. I saw this in your own town........ All I have to say on that subject is, that those of you who believe that the negro is your equal and ought to be on an equality with you socially, politically, and legally, have a right to entertain those opinions, and of course will vote for Mr. Lincoln.  (No, No, down with the Niggers)"
Papers often, even at the time, cleaned up "Nigger"  to "Negro", but some quoted Douglas verbatum. Douglas was well known for using "Nigger"  even on Senate floor,  and was admonished for it, repeatedly.   Even Southern Senators used the term "Negro"  in such settings., Not Stephen A Douglas. 
______________________________________________

In the Charleston debate, Douglas, well aware of the fear of black men taking white women had in that city, screamed these things about Lincoln wanting your daughter to sleep with "Niggers"  as Douglas went from side to side of the stage. in the most dramatic way possible.

This was a basic approach Douglas used to some extent, in the debates, and when he spoke around the country without Lincoln being there. In some places he would be more extreme - some say he was drunk -- but always, in each speech, his goal was to get people to fear anyone who was against slavery.   

Douglass -- Frederick Douglass -- knew what Lincoln was up against.   

______________________________________________

That was in the newspapers at the time, and was no surprise to anyone.  Fear of black man sleeping with your daughter and "being with" your wife, was the common retort to anyone who was against slavery.  And it worked.  

The fear and hate mongering by Douglas, worked very well.  Lincoln lost that election, and would have lost the Presidential election too, if the hate and fear mongers did not split the pro slavery vote three ways. 

___________________________________________________________________________ 


LINCOLN  RESPONDS TO HATE AND FEAR

Scaring the crap out of the males in the audience -- the only ones that could vote -- worked. Despite all his efforts,

  Lincoln had to use humor and much of his time, deflecting this claim he wanted "your daughters to sleep with Niggers"

 Lincoln lost to Douglas in the Senate race, and would have likewise lost in the Presidential race, but the pro-spread of slavery folks had three candidates. 

 Lincoln was the ONLY candidate against slavery, with the very mild platform of no spread of slavery.

White people were still being killed, even in the North for being "radical abolitionist"  .

Southern leaders BRAGGED blacks were subhuman, did you know that - or not? 


Southern leaders BRAGGED their "new nation" was based on the "great moral and scientific truth" that blacks were inferior beings, not human beings like whites.  


But Lincoln is the bad guy?

The Southern War Ultimatums -- printed first in Richmond papers, with headline "THE TRUE ISSUE".




How war ultimatums appeared in Douglass's paper.

Full text of Southern paper



The TRUE ISSUE -- and their war ultimatums, were that Lincoln allow the spread of slavery into Kansas, and Kansas "accept and respect slavery."


The WAR ultimatum, let that sink in WAR ULTIMATUM -- that Kansas accept and respect slavery.


Kansas had REJECTED slavery and become a free state, and by a 95% vote!!   Do you grasp that?   FUCKING HELL.


No one told you -- ever -- that Southern War Ultimatums demanded a free state turn into a slave state. Did they? You never heard that? FUCK NO.


It would help if US text books mentioned it- - so all the US would know what scum sucking pigs and lunatic Confederate leaders were.  


COnfederate leaders didn't suggest it, didn't say it would be preferable.  They said in writing the war ultimatums.


THEN THEY ATTACKED.

They were not fucking bluffing.  They issued their war ultimatums, Lincoln would not obey, and they attacked.  They were already killing in Kansas, anyway.


LINCOLN'S SUPPOSED EVOLUTION: 

Lincoln did evolve-- on his awareness how he could kill slavery so bad, for the next 150 years, Southern leaders would deny the very things they bragged about then.

______________________________________________


Lincoln called "Negro Worshiper"  by New York papers.

LETTER TO GREELEY


Every high school history teacher can tell you about Lincoln's letter to Greeley, where LIncoln says if he could save the union without freeing and slaves, he would.


Sounds horrible?


Why would Lincoln write that letter to Greeley??

Actually, Lincoln did NOT write that letter to Greeley  -- he wrote to the border states, via Greeley, because Lincoln knew that in 24-48 hours, most people that mattered would read his letter to "Greeley".


More about that, below.


Meanwhile, Southern leaders are killing to spread slavery, bragging about it, and that's fine. Lincoln is the bad guy?  Seriously?

Remember, Southern leaders were BRAGGING they were killing to spread slavery.  And LIncoln is the bad guy because he, at that time, spoke about Union? 

He fucking had to.  A few more days, and those Southern states go with Jeff Davis. Do you grasp that or not?

KILLING THE GOD OF SLAVERY


LINCOLN'S REAL ACCOMPLISHMENT





Killing the God of Slavery. Lincoln's final gesture






__________________________________



No one seems to grasp this now -- but once Lee surrendered, do you know that no Southern leader, not one, not for the next 150 years, ever claimed that bullshit again, about God intended slavery, intended slaves be tortured (yes, they claimed that before, often) and that God wanted white men to enslave the black race.


That all stopped -- instantly.  An amazing difference.  Blacks were still beaten, some were in slavery illegally, many of the horrible things continued.


But that "God of slavery" was a very real God-- at least used daily by Southern leaders.   Lincoln killed that excuse.


__________________________________


Plus Lincoln's actions.  Have you ever heard about his "radical" actions from 1846-65?


Douglass knew all these.  Did anyone bother to mention them, to you?









___________________________________

The fact you do not know this -- everyone knew it in 1850's -- show how whitewashed the Dred Scott decision has been, we now teach it as something about "citizenship"  and Congress can not decide slavery "issues" in the territories.

As Jefferson Davis said -- Dred Scott was about blacks as persons or not. They are not persons, specifically they are not persons.





John Brown lasted about two hours, in Virginia, kicking slavery in the ass his way. Then he was hung, and so were his sons.

His other son already got killed, back in Kansas.

Lincoln fought a bit smarter -- and got the job done.
______________________________________________________


ABOLITIONIST SHOULD BE HUNG

People  were arrested in the South, just for owning the wrong  book-- even preachers were arrested.

The article claims the South is the most moral, religious, and contented law abiding people on earth.   But those abolitionist are against God, against religion, against decency, and should be hung.  

The US Senator from Missouri boasted in his speech, he would kill to spread slavery, and kill to stop folks from speaking openly against slavery. That's not from some nut -- that was a US Senator boasting of it.

Those against slavery are against human virture, against modesty, they "must be hung or put in the penitentary" or the South will secede at once.


 
Frederick Douglass knew about articles like this -- because he reprinted them, in his own paper.

So Douglas knew the dangers to Lincoln -- and he knew Lincoln was trying to win elections, to get support of folks who thought blacks were sorta dogs that could talk and walk upright.  Lincoln lost elections BECAUSE Douglas appealed over and over to fear and hate of blacks.

You probably didn't even learn, the United States Supreme Court  ordered --  yes ordered -- that blacks be seen as NOT human beings (not persons)  but as property.


That is why LIncoln spent every day, for years, going around telling folks the South has set things in motion to spread slavery into all of the US, by Kansas Act, and Dred Scott decision.

Thousands of speeches.

Thousands of miles.

Daily.  "Over and over and over"  according to people accusing Lincoln of "wanting your daughters to sleep with Niggers,"  Lincoln said blacks and whites are equal under the law, and we must change Dred Scott decision, by appeal, or by Constitutional Amendment.

And he did just that -- exactly that. Lincoln pushed through the 13 Amendment, in Congress, just days before he was killed.

And he was killed for being "obsessed with equality for the Nigger".
___________


BURN US TO DEATH?
THATS WHAT THEY TOLD FOLKS

Lincoln is going to "burn us to death"  by just being against the spread of slavery.    Not by coming South and ending slavery, just being against the spread of slavery was going to
  
     BURN US TO DEATH 

Let that sink in your head. Official Southern document -- you never heard of it. 

Lincoln will "burn us slowly to death" just by being against the spread of slavery.  The spread of slavery he was talking about, was into Kansas, and Kansas had already voted against slavery 95%.  And they would vote against slavery again, by 95% again.

But slavery MUST go into Kansas, anyway, said Jefferson Davis.




Lincoln is going to "torture" us to death, by "slow fire"  just by being against the spread of slavery.




The governor of Georgia wrote a long "open letter" to the people of the South, telling them the same thing. Lincoln will destroy us by BEING AGAINST THE SPREAD OF SLAVERY.

If you don't know how insane, extreme, and violent Southern  leaders were -- killing to spread slavery for decades-  don't blame me.  Blame your white washed history text books, which fail to mention Southern leaders boasted of torture, of killing, to spread slavery.

They also don't mention how fucking radical Lincoln was. 


There is a REASON Frederick Douglass claimed Lincoln was radical, zealous, swift and determined.

There is a REASON Stephen A Douglas claimed Lincoln was "obsessed for equality of the Niggers".

What was that reason?  


1) They were there.  

2) They knew LIncoln's full speeches 

3) They knew Lincoln's actions

4) They weren't fooled by bullshit


___________

WHAT DOUGLAS KNEW -- AND YOU DON'T/

Douglass knew -- what you don't have a clue about. How it was dangerous as hell to go into certain places, and be an "abolitionist".   In many parts of the country, an "abolitionist"  was one rung above a child molester.   Later, we would see abolitionist as a noble thing -- not so, in fact it was dangerous, even in some Northern states, to be called abolitionist.

Immediately, when anyone was even against the killing to SPREAD slavery, they were called "abolitionist"  and "Nigger lover".     

No one told you that, did they?

Even in the South, if you were not violent enough, eager enough to spread slavery, you could be called an "abolitionist"  and "Negro Worshiper".

No one told you that, did they?
___________

WHERE LINCOLN WENT
WHEN HE WENT
TO WHOM HE SPOKE

 In fact, no abolitionist went to where Lincoln went, and dared say what he did.

Far from being timid about kicking slavery in the ass -- Lincoln was radical as hell, when you know what was going on.   Those big famous "abolitionist" speakers?  Think they went where Lincoln did, said what he did?

Hell no.  That would be insane.  People were still being killed, even in Illinois, during Lincoln's adult life, for being abolitionist. His friend, Lovejoy, was killed, possibly burned alive, in his newspaper building in Alton IL, by a crowd who warned him to shut down his "abolition"  newspaper.

He did not shut it down, and they burned him, and the newspapers building together.   To make sure no one  used the equipment again, they threw that into the Mississippi River.

Other folks in other places -- IN THE NORTH -- were killed and their presses thrown into rivers.


No one told you that.



GOING TO KANSAS
NO ONE TOLD YOU THIS

But no one told you that.  For example, Lincoln went to Kansas AFTER it was illegal in Kansas to speak or write publicly against slavery.  

Did you know that?

You didn't even know Southern leaders went to Kansas, set up a "bogus legislature"  and passed laws against speech or writing against slavery, did you?

Very basic -- Southern leaders, namely Jeff Davis, sent killers to Kansas in 1856.  Their, they made it illegal to speak or publish newspapers against slavery.

And Lincoln went there ANYWAY, and spoke ANYWAY.

Name me on other person running for public office in ANY state, who did that. Go on, look. You can't find anyone.

And no one fucking told you.  Not your fault, but no one fucking told you a word about it. 

That's because Lincoln was a bad ass.  And effective.  And because "history text books"  have white washed the crazy ass Southern leaders, violent paid killers, and how ISIS like Southern leaders were.

And how bad ass Lincoln was.

_________________________________________

A LITTLE KNOWLEDGE

See if you can guess what that might be?   To know, though, you would have to know what Douglass knew.  And no, you don't know.   This is not taught in any text book, or even mentioned in popular "histories".


Douglass, knew for example, things you won't find in any US text book -- like Stephen A Douglas (Lincoln's opponent for Senate, and President)  all but urged people to physically beat Lincoln, as Douglas had urged fellow Senator Charles Sumner be beaten -- and Sumner was beaten, on the Senate floor.

Douglass knew that, because he knew Stephen A Douglas had a role in getting Charles Sumner beaten, almost to death, on the Senate floor.   No one to you that, did they?

It was reported in newspaper AT THE TIME, before Sumner was beaten, Douglas promised Sumner they would "kick him like a dog".  Days later, Sumner was beaten.



Douglas speech included promises to Sumner, that they would kick him like a "dog in the street" that he may "get sympathy and just chastisement". 

And indeed he was beaten nearly to death, as Stephen A Douglas stood nearby, reports showed, smiling, as the old man was hit 32 times in the skull, with a metal object. 

 But more than anything -- as Lincoln and Frederick Douglass knew, that your "history" teacher does not,  was Douglas role in the killing sprees Kansas that followed the Kansas Act.


Lincoln went to Kansas -- after Southern leaders made it a crime to speak or write publically against slavery in Kansas, in 1859.  There, he spoke against slavery.

 How many Lincoln haters bother to mention any of this shit?  Zero, that's how many 

 ____________________________

Lincoln's speeches were powerful, dynamic, and compelling.  But he did have to parse words in parts of some speeches, especially the debates.

See his other speeches, where he did not have to worry about getting attacked, as others were. His Peoria, Bloomington, or Springfield speech. Stunning.

Even in those speeches where Lincoln "parsed" words, he kicked ass.  He was radical as hell. You just have to learn the full speech, not the edited bullshit.

And you have to know what the fuck was going on. 


Lincoln's friend was killed (Lovejoy)  possibly burned to death, in his own building, for printing an anti slavery newspaper, in ILLINOIS.



_________________________________________________

DOUGLAS AND ATCHISON 
PASS KANSAS ACT

Do you know -- your history teacher should know -- what Senator Charles Sumner was speaking about, when he was beaten nearly to death?

Your teacher will NOT know, but claim they do.  Ask them, ask them who Sumner was speaking about, and what Sumner accused that guy of doing.

Sumner was speaking for HOURS -- two days, about what Atchison and his men did,  after they passed Kansas Act.  A list of crimes -- tortures, killings, hangings -- done after Atchison got Kansas Act passed.  

Kansas Act - supposedly -- was a "sincere effort to settle the question of domestic institutions".  Domestic institutions meaning slavery.

But 90% of the people in Kansas were AGAINST slavery already, already voted, and would vote again 90% against slavery.

Instead of letting Kansas folks "be perfectly free" to decide themselves - the guy who passed Kansas Act raced to Kansas and started terrorizing, and later, killing.

Common knowledge at the time, all but forgotten today.  Worse, idiots teach the lie -- that Kansas Act was about "popular sovereignty".  Fuck no it was not, it was a ruse, a violent plan according to Lincoln himself, to force slavery into Kansas.

How the fuck does anyone teach that Kansas Act was about popular sovereignty, when the guy who actually passed it, boasted he was in Kansas killing and terrorizing to STOP people from voting against slavery?

One of the mysteries of stupid people, repeating other stupid people, I suppose.  

_________________________________________________

Douglas (Stephen A) and David Rice Atchison passed Kansas Act, after which Atchison rushed out to Kansas and started terrorizing, later killing.


He was speaking about David Rice Atchison, the man who, with Douglas, passed Kansas Act. Specifically, Sumner exposed the killings and tortures carried about by Atchison's men.   

So no, Stephen A Douglas taunts of Lincoln wants your daughters to "sleep with Niggers"  was not some innocent throw away line.

Douglas was hoping someone would beat Lincoln nearly to death too.  

Time to wake up your history teacher, have them read Lincoln's full speeches, Douglas taunts to Lincoln and others, and his role in helping Southern leaders invade Kansas and the killing sprees that followed. People were well aware of it then. 



___________________________________________

LINCOLN'S HUMOR - LIFE SAVER

After Lincoln was called "Negro Worshiper" in the press, and in person "wants your daughters to sleep with Niggers" -- Lincoln had to speak.

Others were beaten, even killed, if the wrong persons would hear of it. People were still being killed -- white people -- for being too "abolitionist".   In fact, the famous abolitionist speakers dared NOT to go where Lincoln went, and speak to crowds Lincoln spoke to.    Another tid bit your history teacher never knew, and didn't tell you.

We all know LIncoln's humor -- he was famous for it then, and now.  But did you know Lincoln had to use this humor, to deflect the attacks Douglas made, about Lincoln wanting your daughter to "sleep with Niggers".

____________________________________

Lincoln is going to "exterminate the white race"  by being against the SPREAD of slavery.  

Remember this -- for just being against the SPREAD of slavery, Lincoln was called "Nigger worshiper"  who "wants your daughters to sleep with Niggers" 

He will burn us slowly to death.

He will exterminate the white race.

Just by being against the spread of slavery.

If you don't understand that -- how violent Southern leaders were, how they pumped up the hate and fear of Lincoln -- you can't understand anything about Lincoln, or the Civil War.

_______________________________________

YES ITS A MOVIE CLIP -- SO WHAT?

How did Lincoln handle this? 

He was called the most vile things -- the movie clip below, like most accounts of Lincoln Douglas debates, have white washed it, toned down the language, such as saying "Negro"  instead of "Nigger"

Newspapers at the time, in Quincy and Charleston, reported Douglas went into "rants about Niggers"  and screamed at the audience about Lincoln's obsession for equality.

In Charleston, local reporters showed Douglas actually ran back and forth on stage, when he came to this subject, and spit out the words with great venom.

That's not reflected in the clip below, but it's the closest we can come without hiring actors to restage what reports showed at the time...

Notice, Lincoln used humor, below, in the video, based on Lincoln Douglas debates, from a 1940 movie, which just happened to touch on this aspect of the Lincoln Douglas debates.

 Smart people will, upon learning something new, adjust their opinion.   Most people just dig in and say it doesn't matter.  No, you did not hear this before.  Most of this is not in any US text book -- but it should have been in all text books.
